Due to limited production there is a purchase limit of 2 bottles.
Created from the best barrels of our estate’s finest vineyard blocks. Lush and full on the palate, an intense core of dark cherry, currants and blackberry fruit with dark chocolate and floral undertones.
Aromas of black cherry, violet, tobacco and sweet vanilla. Dark and bold, with concentrated flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, espresso and cracked pepper. Dense tannins and a silky texture round out the palate.
A beautiful, vibrant hue of pale pink. The nose exudes fresh cut strawberries with lemon zest and floral tinges. The palate is laser-focused with bright flavors of fresh strawberries and raspberries, with a pleasant structure of lively, clean acidity.
Balanced wine of complexity, concentration, and richness. Black cherry, blueberry, and plum are the gateway to a multi-layered palate of dark fruits, vanilla, black currant, and the ideal tannin-acid structure on this wine.
This 2016 Altvs is a delicious bottle of wine. Compared with Merus, it is more classically Cabernet Sauvignon, not as opulent but with great length and ageability. Buy several cases and drink them over the next 20 to 30 years.
The leading aroma is dominated by melted black and red licorice candy smells followed up by super-ripe or sunbaked blackberries. The oak contributes vanilla extract to the fruit and spice. The perfect cold weather sipping wine!
