Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Details





Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) The 2005 Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has quickly become one of my favorite wines from our Estate Vineyards. The wine is extremely concentrated, rich and polished with a complex core of black fruit. The deep hues of black cherry are a precursor to the flavors of blackcurrant, coffee, licorice, cocoa and cedar. The soft and well integrated tannins carry and hold these textures and flavors into a long and lingering finish.

    Wine Spectator - 31 May 2009 ALTAMURA Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005 Score: 93 Release Price: $75 A ripe, juicy mix of black cherry, wild berry, plum and currant, this firms up midpalate and holds its focus, revealing greater depth and complexity and ending with a nice tight, tannic backbone. Drink now through 2016. 4,100 cases made. –JL
