Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Once again as with our past 18 vintages released, this 2003 Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is blessed with the same quality and consistency which has kept our customers coming back year after year: the dark, inky color staining your glass, the bouquet of briary dark fruit, like blackberry followed by wisps of truffles and leather. The first sip immediately unveils the deep richness and luxury of this wine, filling your mouth with flavors of black cherry, currant, creamy cocoa, and toasty oak. The elegant texture of Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes through again in the way this wine seamlessly delivers these flavors over the palate, held together and carried by the structure of soft integrated tannins, allowing a long and memorable finish. The 2003 vintage produced 3500 cases in 750ml, 1.5 liter and 3 liter bottlings and was released on October 1, 2006. The wine is distributed in the United States, Internationally and directly through the winery.

This Napa Cabernet has great depth and power, yet with a softness on the edges that makes it ready to drink. The perfect wine for a steak.
