Au Sommet

2022 Au Sommet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Au Sommet (o-so-may)...To the top, the very highest point at which we excel at what we do!

We are pleased to offer you a 3-bottle allocation of Au Sommet 2022.

The v2021 is long gone but this gem will ship to you in just a matter of months. Our production of Au Sommet 2022 (97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot) afforded us just shy of 400 cases to share with you. And as a bonus, we will ship a bottle of our estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the first 100 allocations as soon as they’re secured. Our organic olive oil is milled from a blend of Spanish varieties and exudes thick layers of flavor with a spicy undertone.

The 2022 harvest in Napa Valley yielded small yet magnificent berries which are the trademark of mountain fruit. The ratio of skins to juice is more concentrated than in valley floor fruit, creating a bigger tannin structure to our Cabernet Sauvignon. We kicked the multi-year California drought in 2022 with copious amounts of rainfall. This added to the vines’ vigor and allowed the root systems to pick up more minerality and earthiness from the volcanic soils on Atlas Peak. As the photo shows, during the dormant season in February we actually received two feet of snow — a gorgeous seasonal sight on Napa Valley’s tallest peaks! 

We produced a couple dozen 1.5L Magnums and only five 5L Jeroboams. All large formats are hand-signed by Heidi.

We plan to ship these wines to you next Fall, 2024. You may submit your order form to reserve your allocation

James Suckling
2021 Vintage
"Blackberries, dark plums, cedar, dried herbs, stones and forest floor on the nose follow through to a full body with plush tannins and texture. It's rich yet balanced with a fresh array of blackberries at the center an a constant frame of spices bringing vitality and giving lift to a juicy fruit on the palate. Well crafted and harmonious with a precise, long finish."

Antonio Galloni
2021 Vintage
"The 2021 Au Sommet is a classy, elegant wine, and also one of the most restrained Cabernets readers will find on Atlas Peak. Blood orange, mint, exotic spice and dried flowers add nuance to a host of dark red fruit flavors. Medium in body and driving, the 2021 is wonderfully vibrant from beginning to end. The long, translucent finish rounds things out in style. Give this a few years to soften."
