This lot comes from our Atlas Peak vineyard, perched high above the "who's who" on Atlas Peak. This meticulously cared for vineyard gains maximum sun exposure during the day from being situated above the fog line, which is balanced by the region’s cool nights. It consistently delivers ripe, concentrated fruit.
For our Premiere Napa Valley offering, Koerner Rombauer and winemaker Richie Allen went through all the lots from this amazing vineyard and picked the most expressive barrel to feature at this year’s event.
