Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, well-balanced red boasting a dense ruby/purple color as well as aromas of roasted herbs, creosote, licorice, black currants, cedar, and loamy soil. Dense and full-bodied with superb richness and power, and sweet tannins, it should drink well for two decades.

Delicious and big cab. Infused with hints of herbs, licorice, mineral and soil. It's a very complex and rich cab. Very tasty!

95 points Robert Parker:`The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big well-balanced red boasting a dense ruby/purple color as well as aromas of roasted herbs creosote licorice black currants cedar and loamy soil. Dense and full-bodied with superb richness and power and sweet tannins it should drink well for two decades. Altamura continues to impress me not only for their Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc but also for one of the finest California Sangioveses money can buy.` 93 points Wine Spectator : `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.`
