International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($60) Deep ruby-red. Dark berries, cherry, leather and game on the rather rustic nose, with a grapey nuance. Then pliant and superripe in the mouth, with creamy fruit flavors complicated by leather and earth. Finishes with slightly dry tannins and good leathery length. I would drink this funky boy in the near term for its creamy sweetness.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 157

A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by attractive aromas of black currants, smoke, underbrush, and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, and nicely-textured, it should be cellared for another 1-2 years, and consumed over the following 10-12.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Tight and a bit earthy and leathery, overshadowing the core of currant and blackberry flavors and giving it a rather intensely rustic personality. Reveals a good measure of complexity and concentration on the finish, but it's hard to ignore the tannin level. 3,800 cases made.

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team

Frank Altamura has quietly created a following among lovers of rich extracted Cabernet Sauvignon. His 1999 was a critical benchmark in a vintage that showed some unevenness. Created from dominant amounts of clone 6 and 337 from over a dozen lots, the 2001 shows off a deep, rich nose of figs, black cherry and currant and flavors of plum, mineral, and black currants all wrapped into a beautifully polished package. Created on the "back side" of Napa Valley, this is one worth "discovery." 3800 cases produced.
