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.

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.

About This Producer


Born and raised in Napa, trained in winemaking at Sterling and Caymus, Frank Altamura has serious credentials. In 1985 he and his wife Karen began their own quest to make exceptional, collectable wine, turning an old cattle ranch in Wooden Valley into vineyards planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. The small valley, nine miles northeast of the town of Napa, provides an ideal setting for the production of intense, multi-layered wines. Warm days give way to temperatures cooler than those of Napa Valley, as fog is blown in, resulting in a longer growing season for this unique sub-appellation. Altamura's two flagship wines, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, represent hallmarks of Frank's winemaking philosophy: low yields in the vineyard and only free-run juice in the barrels. A Nebbiolo, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc are also produced.
