Story

Atlas is a new generation farming company with over 40 years of combined expertise 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 afordable price.

Vineyard

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!

Vinification

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

Tasting Notes

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

Food Pairing

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