Altvs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 (750ml)
From the same fruit sources as the Merus bottling, the Altus comes from selecting barrels that showcase fruit and pure varietal character and a tannin profile that is more feminine than masculine within the context of the vintage. As the 2012 vintage was massive in structure, so is the 2012 Altus. While this bold wine opens up it is filled with layer upon layer of chocolate, black currant (cassis), cedar, and licorice root. It is super-soft, intensely flavored, and mouthwatering.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 1% Merlot
