Tasting Notes

Winemaker Andy Erickson

The 2019 Seven Apart Summit is defined by black cherries, licorice, wet granite, and high-mountain underbrush. These complex aromas and flavors combine to create a unique expression of our vineyard and a pure representation of the vintage. The texture is solid but smooth, with a mouthwatering palate impression, and a long, confident finish.

2019 was a vintage full of energy. The wines have an inherent brightness, focus, and precision. The grapes from our Stags Ridge Vineyard, on the top of Atlas Peak, produced wines with dark, expressive power and an unapologetic sense of place. For the Seven Apart Summit blend, we selected from two of our most compelling vineyard blocks and returned the assemblage to 100% new French Oak barrels for a total of 22 months of aging. The effect is a concentrating of the aromas and flavors, and a polishing of the Atlas Peak tannins, which are quite structured. 

Cellaring & Decanting

This wine will age for decades, but if someone prefers more fruit in the expression, 3-5 years of age would be great. I prefer to taste these kinds of wines after 10-15 years in the bottle.

Once you are ready to savor the wine, we highly suggest decanting.

Decant young wines for 1 hour and add 1 hour of decanting for every 10 years of age. You can speed decanting wine by pouring the wine once or twice between two decanters (or between the decanter and the wine bottle with a funnel). If you don’t have a decanter, swirl your wine in the glass. The swirling increases the surface area of wine to oxygen and aerates it just as decanting would.
