“Our hillside and valley floor estate vineyards in Wooden Valley are at elevations of 700 to 1000 feet. Soil types on the ranch which are similar to the Rutherford Bench and the mountainous regions of Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill and Mount Veeder called for several different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon on a number of different rootstocks upon planting in 1986.  The vines are dry-farmed and vertically trellised.”
“Fermentation of Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon occurs in both open and closed top fermenters.  Certain lots are allowed to macerate on their skins for up to three weeks following fermentation.  This technique produces a wine with softer, more integrated tannins, which carry fruit and oak nuances through to the palate.  The wine is racked into 70% new French oak barrels for a period of 34 months.  The wine is lightly filtered and then bottled.”
94 Points Wine Spectator: “Steeped Black Mission fig, plum and blackberry flavors are melded to warm fruitcake, dark licorice and Turkish coffee notes. Despite the profile, this is defined, with a subtle sanguine hint adding detail on the seductive finish. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made.”
