Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

$84.95

Altamura makes one of the best "under the radar" Cabernet Sauvignon's in Napa Valley. If you like the big cult Cabernet's, try this for a fraction of the price. 94 Points Brix26:  "The hallmark style of rich, multi-layered Cabernet Sauvignon is all there.  Ripe and concentrated with the intense Wooden Valley fruit that we've come to love. A beautiful rich texture, dense blackberry, melted black licorice, touches of cinnamon, and baking spice. In winemaker Frank Altamura's opinion, their best effort to date."

Super smoky, earthy, and bbq-y, yet with blueberry and strawberry preserve. Excellent with bloody red meat. In your face.

Who said 11 was a bad year? Beautiful wine! Soft & silky tannins with lots of dark fruit on the nose. Great mouthfeel and finish

Always one of my favorite producers. another crowd pleaser. Silky smooth tannins. Big Napa cab that is well balanced. Mocha and black fruit. Decadent.

Loads of sweet, lush black fruit upfront, very modest oak, and firming tannins on the finish. Paired wonderfully with steak au poivre. A little too fruit-forward for my tastes but a nice wine nonetheless.
