Winemaker's Notes

After much anticipation the 2006 Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has been released! Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the 2006 vintage is ripe and concentrated with the intense Wooden Valley fruit that you've come to love.

Critical Acclaim

"A brilliant 2006, with gorgeous, rich, supple and juicy blackberry-laced Cabernet flavors that are bold and intense, yet supple and refined, with complex mocha, roasted herb, espresso and anise flavors that combine power with finesse. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made."
94 Points

"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) possesses aromas of creme de cassis, white chocolate, espresso roast, dusty, loamy soil, and a full-bodied structure. With rich, powerful flavors that cascade over the palate as well as beautiful purity and depth, it will be even better with another 2-4 years of cellaring, and is capable of lasting 20-25 years. "

A rich and inviting nose! Positively jammy, filling the palate with succulent berry flavors. The fruit and the tannins were well balanced, giving way to a silky, lingering finish. If you can find it, it is a must buy! I know I will buy again if it can be found.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
