Winemaker's Notes:

Altvs is a project begun with the 2005 vintage at Merus winery in the Napa Valley. The idea: to produce hand crafted, small lot Cabernet Sauvignon based wines that celebrate the hedonistic qualities of lushness, density and ripeness while remaining true to the intensity and power of modern day Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. In a very short time since its initial release, Altvs has captured the imagination of an international audience, garnering critical acclaim through the world of fine wine.

Tasting Notes:

The 2006 Altus is a meticulously handcrafted small production, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with intense and heady aromas of ripe black fruits, French plums, crushed dried wildflowers, licorice and spices atop a luscious pure creamy texture framed by classic minerality. In the mouth, the entry is seamless, the tannins velvety, and the flavors have intensity and verve. The wine is mouth coating, the fruit power and chocolaty finish lingers for some time.
