Altamura Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Wine SpectatorUltrarich and extracted, offering a powerful array of blackberry, licorice, gravelly earth, cedar and tobacco leaf notes. Never eases up on torque and authoritative presence. Best from 2021 through 2035.
Wine AdvocateProduced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all estate fruit and aged for 34 months in 70% new French oak, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and expressive nose of crème de cassis, mocha and bay leaves plus hints of fertile loam, licorice and sandalwood. The full-bodied palate is laden with spicy black fruit and earthy layers, framed by grainy tannins and finishing long and perfumed.
