Altvs Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastLush ripe plum, licorice and toasty oak form a triangle of flavor in this blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The tannins are undoubtedly present yet soft. Much of the fruit comes from cool Coombsville, with a slight floral characteristic popping up from the midpalate through to the finish.
Wine SpectatorThe core fruit flavors are ripe and juicy, centered on plum, currant and blackberry notes. Dry and savory, with dried herb and cedar accents on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,215 cases made.
