93 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. 93 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon rocks up with gregarious black cherries, blackcurrants and warm plums with hints of menthol, chocolate box and fragrant earth. Big, rich and full-bodied, with loads of minted black berry and earthy layers, it has a firm, grainy frame and fantastic length." 93 Points Wine Spectator: "Exhibits a tight core of vibrant blackberry, anise, gravel, cedar and tobacco leaf flavors, and though the tannins are study, this shows a measure of grace and harmony that bodes well for the future. Drink now through 2032." 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.
Great wine. Blackberry, anise, vanilla, gravelly mineral. Mmmm.
