Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 180

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, well-balanced red boasting a dense ruby/purple color as well as aromas of roasted herbs, creosote, licorice, black currants, cedar, and loamy soil. Dense and full-bodied with superb richness and power, and sweet tannins, it should drink well for two decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A ripe, juicy mix of black cherry, wild berry, plum and currant, this firms up midpalate and holds its focus, revealing greater depth and complexity and ending with a nice tight, tannic backbone.

Great classic Altamura nose and flavors. Primary fruit a bit faded, but wonderful smooth sweet tannins. Kept getting better with time and air.

Elegant wine, but fading. Drink it now. It won't hold up to a heavy steak, but will be great with a lighter meal.

A little out of sorts if you ask me. The color is starting to turn, a tinge of brown, but still mostly red. The nose is a nice California Napa nose of cherry and cassis fruit, with some hints of tobacco and lead pencil. The palate is a bit chunky, the attack is great, full bodied with persistent fruit. But the mid palate is a bit hot and prickly, disrupting the consistency. The finish rounds out nice, with fine tannins and good fruit. Will this settle back in, not likely...I think the mid-palate is fading fast so drink up.
