Frank Altamura’s passion for detail is clearly defined by his richly textured, highly collectable wine. Founded in 1985 by Napa Valley natives Frank and Karen Altamura, Altamura Vineyards and Winery is located on a sprawling natural ranch on Wooden Valley Road in Napa Valley where estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese are meticulously produced. – Description from mriskic

  • Who else is still drinking the 1996 California cabs?  I had yet another bottle on Memorial Day and loved it.  Altamura '96 was lovely. Previously I've loved the 1996 BV GdLatour.  As we know, 1997 amazed people but has largely faded early. Two questions:1. Which of the 2000s vintages will age like the 96s have done so gracefully?2. Which 1996s i... Read More

  • Altamura Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    After 31 months of aging in my cellar, this opaque in color with a voluptuously aromatic nose delivered a type of mouthfeel one can only achieve from the creme de la creme of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Vintners. Enjoyed on our 6th month Wedding Anniversary at Le Cigare Volant in Santa Cruz. A wine truly crafted with an undeniable eloquence. Read More
