1997 Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Ripe and concentrated with the intense Wooden Valley fruit that you've come to love. A beautiful rich texture, dense blackberry, melted black licorice, touches of cinnamon, and baking spice. In winemaker Frank Altamura's opinion, their best effort to date.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2004 Vintage) The wine is beautifully impressive, with a deep ruby/purple color and notes of loamy soil intermixed with creme de cassis, cedar, and licorice. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, but beautifully nuanced and nicely structured, with sweet, silky tannins.
