The Atom ‘Dark Matter’ California Cabernet. One of nature’s greatest unsolved mysteries meets one of our most beloved wines. Seeking to achieve the perfect, zero-deficit flavor profile, we harvest clusters at the point of perfect ripeness & combine them at the press before a slow, meticulous fermentation. Allowed to rest in perfect darkness, the unfolding of an elemental prowess takes shape. A smoldering nose of black pepper & currant melds seamlessly into a lush, robust palate of velvety violet, tobacco leaf, cassis & subtle licorice. Balanced acidity & integrated tannins linger at the tongue for what seems an endless night.

A heavy, sweet-oak component obscures most of the fruit flavor in this medium-bodied wine. It tastes like wood smoke, cedar and mint all the way through.
