Au Sommet is a partnership between Heidi Peterson Barrett, John Schwartz and Jim Barbour and is a Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend from their seven acre vineyard on top of Atlas Peak in the acclaimed Napa Valley.
Aromatic, intense and yet also light on its feet, this wine speaks to weightless intensity. A host of sweet tobacco, cedar, menthol, dried herbs and licorice add nuance throughout. A wine of translucent, understated power, it is wonderfully complete. Drink it over the next decade or so.
