Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$115

94 Points - new release                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 Wine Spectator:  "Ultrarich and extracted, offering a powerful array of blackberry, licorice, gravelly earth, cedar and tobacco leaf notes. Never eases up on torque and authoritative presence. Best from 2021 through 2035." Frank Altamura’s passion for detail is clearly defined by his richly textured, highly collectable wine.  Founded in 1985 by Napa Valley natives Frank and Karen Altamura, Altamura Vineyards and Winery is located on the Altamura Ranch in Wooden Valley Road in Napa Valley where estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese are meticulously produced.

Subtle aromas of mint, black fruit and chocolate. Tooth staining black in color. Still fruit forward on the palate with flavors of plum, blackberry and anise. Med-firm tannins with a nice finish.

Probably the second best Cab I've tasted this year... explosion of fruit and dark flowers on nose & palate. After decanting for an hour, exhibits spice and hint of mint. Long finish with soft tannins.
