Winemaker Notes

Before your first sip of the 2002 Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon think carefully about where you are and who you are with because this memory is going to be with you for a very long time. Pour this wine into a glass and you'll be immediately impressed by the deep saturated pigmentation that clings to the side of the glass. Inhale and fill all of your senses with the dark aromas of truffles, club room leather and briary dark fruits of late summer. Just below the surface is the promise of an intense first taste. Unfolding on your palate are well-integrated flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cocoa and currant all delivered on waves of toasty oak, fresh acidity and elegant long chain, fine grained tannins. A seemingly endless finish will secure this wine on your short list of top notch, memorable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An impressive Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of coffee bean, black currant, chocolate, and sandalwood, the wine is elegant, full-bodied, and expansive and fleshy, very much in keeping with this vintage, which I think is one of the great ones for Napa Cabernet. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A wine of extremes. Despite an initial whiff of soy and a slight nutty edge, the core is built around intense dark berry, cedar, lead pencil and sour berry notes. Deeply concentrated and firmly tannic.

Altamura Winery Image
Established in 1985 by Frank and Karen Altamura, Altamura Vineyards and Winery is the sole winery situated in the historical farming region of Wooden Valley, located within the eastern foothills of famed Napa Valley. Altamura is the first to capture the unique characteristics of Wooden Valley in a bottling. Napa native Frank and Karen have a decidedly hands-on approach to every step of the growing and winemaking process. Thus, a natural production limit is established and the wines reflect the Altamuras' deep commitment to reflecting the terroir of their Wooden Valley Ranch.

Napa Valley

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
