Professional Reviews For This Wine


Vinfolio | Rating: 93

Altamura is proof that you can never get too much of a good thing. The winery produces over 3,500 cases of this wine, which was recently scored 94 points in The Wine Advocate. We have been fans of this Wooden Valley property for years. Try a half case and see what the fuss is about or, better yet, taste it side by side with the 1999 Altamura Cabernet.

Shows the classic Altamura aromatics: black cherry, cedar, cassis and tobacco with hints of violet and lilac arching through the nose. The palate is supple espresso, blackberry plum and densely structured chocolate.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
