I absolutely love the @acumenwine lineup for its way of separating itself from other California red wine, especially their blend. Using roughly 70% of their large 116 acres in the Atlas Peak area on Cabernet Sauvignon alone, Acumen only produces about 7,000 cases of wines annually with an output capable of supporting upwards of 30,000 cases. These folks are the epitome of hands on (crew of 25 full time vineyard staff members fully suppprted), organic, sustainable farming and production. All of the harvest they do not use, is sold locally to other renowned Napa Valley winemakers.

This is their 2014 Mountainside Red Blend, consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This blend has a marvelous, fresh nose of mocha and black/blueberry pie. For how dark in color and how heavily new oaked this wine is, the integration is magnificent. Subtle, supple and smooth are all appropriate to describe the mid palette. Big time acid from the terroir, however it does not scare you away due to the berry flavor and pleasantly light but noticeable tannin. Only 2700 cases produced of this vintage, if you see this on the shelf do not pass it up!

Wine Tasting Today #acumenwine #sauvignonblanc

Three separate assignments in the past year necessitated visits to @acumenwine’s @downtownnapa tasting room. Lucky me. A few weeks ago, wine educator Edgar Solis hosted the Summit Experience, which involves sips from Acumen’s Mountainside and PEAK (as in @atlaspeakava) portfolios. The PEAK Cabs are the stars, but all these wines are precision crafted. Added bonus: @lasaison_napa small bites that bring out the best in them and vice versa. Chicken cracklin' with duck confit, mustard, and apricot (third from left) uplifted Mountainside red blend, which in turn heightened the duck's flavors. All the pairings had a similar effect. Tasting is a good value, btw, and Edgar, Marian, Jennifer, and the team know their wines

Chinese zodiac portraits by Vincent Xeus (@xeusverum), who designed the #acumenwine space, are behind Edgar and reflected in the library shot of the so-so-good PEAK 2013 Cab, in its tannins, structure, and restrained power a classic #atlaspeakava wine. Also in the test-tube chandelier. Roses are at end of row at estate Attelas Vineyard, formerly owned by Dr. Jan Krupp, who developed famous Stagecoach Vineyard nearby. Shot shows a little of that iron-rich Atlas Peak soil. Gold-leaf chandelier back in tasting room is the recycled top of a stainless-steel fermentation tank. Acumen is on my @bindutrips #downtownnapa itinerary. Link in bio.

LPT: A roll of toilet paper around the neck of a bottle of wine will help prevent breakage. It provides protection around the weakest spot. #AcumenWine #LifeProTip #TravelTip #MonykerBags #travelingwithmonyker

@acumenwine tasting room is located on first street in the heart of downtown Napa and offer three wine tasting experience! I loved the hospitality and all the wines poured was phenomenal! They open every day 10 am to 7 pm 👌🏻! @acumenwine fica localizado bem no centro de Napa e perto de uma grande variedade de restaurantes!
