Atalon Napa Valley Pauline’s Cuvee is a powerful Merlot and Cabernet Franc blend inspired by the strength of Atalon’s matriarch, Pauline Banke. Crafted in the style of the Right Bank wines of Bordeaux, this cuvee is sourced from exclusive vineyard sites throughout Napa Valley—including the Stagecoach Vineyard on Atlas Peak and the Coombsville Vineyard in the recently designated Coombsville appellation—and reveals a taste of the region’s majestic geology.
Crafted in the style of Bordeaux’s Right-Bank wines, our Pauline’s Cuvee offers subtle aromas and flavors of dark cherry, plum and current with fully integrated sweet oak, spice, toast and tobacco. This is a smooth wine, with a soft, complex entry that leads into a palate of great depth and balance.
