Winemaker Notes

79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot.

2007 marks our second vintage of Altvs, a handcrafted, small-production, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This elegant wine features fruit from a handful of selected rows within our favorite vineyards located from Coombsville to St. Helena. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and was aged in 100% French oak barrels, half of which were new. Small portions of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec were incorporated for added color, texture, aromatics and complexity. The 2007 Altvs Cabernet delivers balance, finesse and intense fruit concentration. The nose is lush and generous with huckleberry, blueberry, crème de cassis, crushed rocks, and cinnamon. The palate is a seamless fabric of acidity, wood, tannin, and alcohol. The finish is full, long, velvety and elegant. While the unusual opulence and structure of this wine allow it to be consumed in its youth, it will continue to evolve and improve over the next decade.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator

A stylish wine that's well-structured and concentrated, slow to unveil its mix of dried currant, blackberry and black licorice, gaining depth and complexity. Yet for all its glimpses of depth and nuance, this needs time. Best from 2012 through 2021.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Made in the modern cult style, this soft, ripely lush Cabernet is immediately likeable for its blackberry-pie filling, black currant liqueur, chocolate, licorice and smoky sweet oak flavors. It's California Cabernet at its heady, opulent best. Drink now.

Altvs
Altvs is a project begun with the 2005 vintage at Merus winery in the Napa Valley. The idea: to produce hand crafted, small lot Cabernet Sauvignon based wines that celebrate the hedonistic qualities of lushness, density and ripeness while remaining true to the intensity and power of modern day Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. In a very short time since its initial release, Altvs has captured the imagination of an international audience, garnering critical acclaim through the world of fine wine.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
