The feather-like stitch pattern of this Aran Lace stole prompted the name of Atlas Peak. Hawks fly high over this appellation in Napa Valley!
The Atlas Peak appellation is best known for outstanding Cabernet Sauvignan, but other varietals include Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Malbec, Marsanne, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Zinfandel.
Atlas Peak is worked in two pieces and grafted in the center.
