About Our Ratings

Altamura 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley
Altamura Vineyards established in 1985 by Frank and Karen Altamura, is the only winery in Wooden Valley, located within the Napa Valley appellation. Napa natives Frank and Karen have a decidedly hands-on approach to every step of the growing and winemaking process. Thus, a natural production limit is established and the wines reflect the Altamura's deep commitment to reflecting the terroir of their Wooden Valley Ranch. This Sauvignon Blanc comes from their 4-acre 18-year-old dry-farmed vineyard which sits at an altitude of 850 feet. The wine is fermented and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months resulting in a wine of great depth and complexity, displaying the flavor and textural profile more like a white Bordeaux than a California Sauvignon Blanc. Very limited production of 500 cases. Robert Parker scored this 92 points saying "The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, which is 100% Sauvignon Blanc barrel-fermented and then aged 12 months in new French oak, doesn’t really show much vanillin or barrique smells, which is somewhat surprising, but that gives you an idea of the intensity of the melony fruit, the figs, the caramelized grapefruit and citrus. This medium-bodied, well-made wine has the texture of a mid-weight Chardonnay and finishes very long and dry. Drink it over the next several years."
