Rating
Wine Spectator 94 Points:
Offers a racy aroma, but tames quickly, with a dill-tinged edge to the tiers of dark berry, mocha, raspberry and subtle earth, gaining depth and maintaining persistence on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2027.

The Wine Advocate, 92 Points
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) displays a firm, dry, Bordeaux-like structure, deep, concentrated, plum, anise and black currant flavors. The abundant fruit is accompanied by lots of structure in this earthy, full-bodied, well-built, muscular Cabernet. Forget it for several years and drink it over the following two decades.


Wine maker notes
Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from our hillside and valley floor estate vineyards in Wooden Valley, located in the southeastern hillsides of the Napa Valley. Altamura's estate vineyards bring these characteristics together in a hallmark style of rich, multi-layered Cabernet Sauvignon.

Other text
Altamura comes from one of the least-known corners of Napa, a small, remote area called Wooden Valley. Northeast of the city of Napa, this area is distinguished by a dramatic fog bank and cooler climate, and subsequently a longer growing season; temperatures here can be as many as 10 degrees lower than the Napa Valley average. Frank and Karen Altamura started planting grapes on their 400-acre family ranch in 1985. They also make Sangiovese and Sauvignon Blanc.
