Au Sommet, Napa Valley
Au Sommet is a partnership between Heidi Peterson Barrett, John Schwartz and Jim Barbour and is a Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend from our seven acre vineyard on top of Atlas Peak in the acclaimed Napa Valley.
2019 Vintage Accolades
"The 2019 Au Sommet Cabernet Sauvignon is magnificent. A classic mountain wine, the 2019 offers up an exciting mix of dark fruit, gravel, graphite, savory herbs, chocolate and menthol. The bouquet alone is mesmerizing, but there is plenty of fruit depth, complexity and overall structure, too. Quite simply, the 2019 is one of the best wines I have tasted from John Schwartz's Atlas Peak estate."
- Antonio Galloni, January 2022
"Loads of crushed stones and wet earth on the nose with some blackberries. Medium-to full-bodied and linear with creamy tannins. Pine needles, bark, nuts and blue fruit. Reserved and fine. Fresh at the end. A beauty already, but it will evolve nicely with bottle age. Drink or hold."
