One of my favorite Cabs from Napa. Full of fruit and a long finish. It's color is rich as it's flavor. The wonderful nose is an added treat. Doesn't disapoint in any catagory. Grapes grown and wine made by Frank Altamura in Wooden Valley, using only the first pressing juices, only from dry farmed grapes, and only the best of berries. No wonder its cost. Worth every penny.

After 31 months of aging in my cellar, this opaque in color with a voluptuously aromatic nose delivered a type of mouthfeel one can only achieve from the creme de la creme of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Vintners. Enjoyed on our 6th month Wedding Anniversary at Le Cigare Volant in Santa Cruz. A wine truly crafted with an undeniable eloquence.

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

I sell this at the restaurant by saying that if velvet could be bottled, it'd be this wine! it's dark and lush with a deep inky nature that just melts over the tongue. the fact that it's limited production shows in the fact that every bottle i've had has lived up my standards consistently.

Yet another vintage of highly rated Cabernet from Altamura. The 2009 vintage is sharp and defined, with a layered dark fruit profile, intriguing spice and mineral notes, and lifted vanilla oak.

A profound effort, offering wonderful purity of flavor, with tiers of anise and black licorice, generous yet structured and elegant. This shows both power and finesse, ending with a wonderful burst of dark berry fruit. Best from 2012 through 2024.

The 2007 was ranked #5 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines for 2010, Altamura contiunes to solidify it's status as the ultimate collectible Cab. This 2008 scored 94 points in the Spectator who said "Combines very ripe, spicy dark berry fruit that's even a touch racy, with a firm backbone and a well-structured mix of acidity and tannins. The fruit is potent and concentrated, yet also shows a suppleness and measure of grace. Should only get better. Drink now through 2024."

Winemaker's Notes:

"Offers a racy aroma, but tames quickly, with a dill-tinged edge to the tiers of dark berry, mocha, raspberry and subtle earth, gaining depth and maintaining persistence on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2027...94" WS 11/13 "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays a firm, dry, Bordeaux-like structure, deep, concentrated, plum, anise and black currant flavors. The abundant fruit is accompanied by lots of structure in this earthy, full-bodied, well-built, muscular Cabernet. Forget it for several years and drink it over the following two decades...92" WA 10/13
