Wine of the Day: Acumen Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon

Fruit grown in the mountains of Napa Valley’s volcanic soils makes my heart melt, particularly from Atlas Peak in the southern part of the region. Acumen “Mountainside” Cabernet Sauvignon ($75) melds ripe red currant and red cherry with earthy, woody herb, leather, and tobacco notes for a rustic, robust expression of somewhat austere fruit. With bold, yet well-integrated tannins, this hearty number will pair with your winter stews and beef-based soups perfectly.
