Winemaker's Note

Atlas is a new generation farming company with over 40 years of combined expertise in farming and developing vineyards around the world. Atlas respects and honors traditional farming practices but also actively seeks and implements innovative ideas and concepts. This enables Atlas Wine to produce hand-crafted wine for under $20 that is made only from AVA grapes, yeast, oak and the minimum amount of free sulfites necessary. No mega-purple, no DCDM, no added sweeteners or mouthfeel agents. Just great tasting wine for a very affordable price.

They pick the fruit just south of Placerville, at an elevation of 2,306 (!). Here in the Fair Play AVA, the high mountainside and deep granite soils develop grapes for intense wines. It’s astounding to us that this area has been growing incredible wine grapes since the California Gold Rush, yet it is still a relatively unknown, untapped goldmine of high-quality fruit!


In order to create the complex foundation of Omen, they work with a vibrant community of distinguished vineyards across the Sierra Foothills. Each block has been fermented separately to be able to preserve the single characteristics of the varietal and the vineyard. The Blend is then created and aged in 30% new French oak for 8 months.


From spices to cassis and dark cherry notes, the complexity of the blend transcends into subtle notes of leather and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is rich with luscious and elegant tannins. A very bold and powerful wine that is still approachable and balanced.


Perfect with Pork Belly Tacos, Korean BBQ or Moroccan Lamb Shanks.

Complex and rich - what I love in a cab

Rich, somewhat of a nice creamy texture and a symphony of beautiful ripe cherry and dark berry flavors.

I most definitely recommend

Decanting/aeration recommended. It takes an hour or more to open up. Opened it after a family dinner and did not finish, so I stored it in the refrigerator for 2 nights before finishing. MANY wines will not hold up as well. This wine was as good if not slightly BETTER on the 3rd night. That's a well crafted wine in my opinion!

5/5!

Black cherry and chocolate, blending with leather oak that is surprisingly light! Goes well with pizza!
