More about this wine from California
The Atom Cabernet Sauvignon is a quintessential California Cabernet and is a great bottle to show off the differences between Old World vs. New World wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the six Noble Grapes, which means it is an OG of wine. In the Old World, the wine is a bit more restrained, prim, and proper, but the New World is more like loud and boisterous neon-colored graffiti art. Both have a time and a place.

The nose on this wine is like a black pepper & currant crust searing on the edges of a filet mignon in an incredibly hot cast-iron skillet. That savory spice eases seamlessly into a lush, robust palate of velvety violets, tobacco leaves, cassis, and jammy dark red fruit with a subtle touch of licorice. The tart backbone of acid with the layered tannins keep all these delectable flavors cozied up on the sides of your cheeks!
