Striking, rich and opulent, elegant and refined, with ripe, dense blackberry, melted black licorice, touches of cinnamon and baking spice, ending with fine-grained, detailed tannins.

Very nice, but does not have the nose or the body so memorable in the 2007. Next time will do 2007 blind with the 2009.

Always a great wine at a relatively reasonable price for Napa Cabernet. Dark berries, dense and full bodied and a long, smooth finish that has a hint of spice. Not quite to the level of 2007 though.

This one would definitely benefit from decanting. It began to open up after about 2 hours of breathing. A friend with whom I was sharing the bottle indicated the oak was prevalent on the palate. But that was not my experience. I found this to be a beautifully balanced wine. Ripe, dark fruit on the palate. I'm thinking it was dark chocolate or perhaps truffles on the finish. So pleased I have two bottles left to enjoy!

Typical rich Altamura fruit and flavors. Always a favorite.
