Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 30 months in 70% new French oak. Its deep plum/ruby color is followed by aromas of clove, baking spices, black cherries and a hint of strawberry jam. This savory, ripe, medium to full-bodied Cabernet is a successful effort for the vintage. It is best consumed over the next 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorA highly successful 2011 that amps up the vivid, rich blackberry, plum and currant notes, firming and drying on the finish. The tannins are ripe and gripping but full of flavor. Drink now through 2022. 3,000 cases made.
