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.
