Winemaker's Notes

#5 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Critical Acclaim

"A profound effort, offering wonderful purity of flavor, with tiers of anise and black licorice, generous yet structured and elegant. This shows both power and finesse, ending with a wonderful burst of dark berry fruit. Best from 2012 through 2024."
96 Points

"Probably the best Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Altamura, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is aged 30 months in 70% new oak from the same high-elevation vineyard as the Sangiovese. Notes of espresso roast, graphite, black currants, sweet black cherries and earthy, loamy terroir are all present in this dense purple, full-bodied, exuberant, concentrated and expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. It can be drunk now or cellared for two decades."

Remarkably different from the 2006 vintage. The 2006 was sweet the 2007 not so. Creme de cassis prevailed in the 2006, currant dominated the palate in the 2007. Those with whom I shared the 2007 noted hints of dark chocolate and cedar. Both showed rich berry flavors and well integrated tannins, with lovely silky finishes leaving me wanting for more. Both were enjoyable now and should drink better with age.

For such a highly rated vino, I (and my companion) expected more. I found it pretty underwhelming, lacking that boutique Napa cab 'OOMPH!". And I Love less fruity wines and drink a ton of Italians. If this is all you get nowadays for $80 bucks from Napa...then Napa needs some fixin'! Not sure what those folks at Wine Spectator are drinking, but I think they need to get out more. Caveat: I'm not a big Malbec fan and there is some in this blend.

Thus, a natural production limit is established and the wines reflect the Altamuras' deep commitment to reflecting the terroir of their Wooden Valley Ranch.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. 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

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. 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. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
