Winespectator Top 100 2010: N°5 "Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008"




n°5 of Top 100:

Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

score: 96/100


 Altamura comes from one of the least-known corners of Napa, a small, remote area called Wooden Valley. Northeast of the city of Napa, this area is distinguished by a dramatic fog bank and cooler climate, and subsequently a longer growing season; temperatures here can be as many as 10 degrees lower than the Napa Valley average. Frank and Karen Altamura started planting grapes on their 400-acre family ranch in 1985. They also make Sangiovese and Sauvignon.
