Alta 2013 Quatreaux Red Blend, Napa Valley
Alta means height in Spanish and perfectly describes the mountainside site of Alta Vineyard in the Atlas Peak district of Napa Valley. The dramatic estate sits at 1700 feet above the Valley and provides fruit for owners Fred and Nina Oliaiís own limited Alta releases. Here, warm daytime temperatures are moderated by early shading and breezes from both San Francisco Bay to the south and the Delta to the east. Optimal conditions for growing intense, focused Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. In the incredible 2013 vintage so much superb quality fruit was produced that they decided to launch Quatreaux. It is a blend of four classic Bordeaux varietals grown on the mountainsides of four exceptional Napa Valley estates. 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot. The Cabernet Sauvignon came from their own Alta Vineyard; the Merlot from Stagecoach Vineyard, the Cabernet Franc from Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Petit Verdot from Greenwood in Calistoga. The four varietals, each at peak ripeness, were co-fermented with native yeasts in an open top tank, creating a sublime, medium body Meritage. After fermentation, the wine was aged for twenty months in French oak,75% new. Only 450 cases were produced. Robert Parker said "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Quatreaux possesses a floral-infused, boysenberry, blueberry and raspberry-scented bouquet, a cool climate character, medium body and excellent elegance as well as finesse. It should drink well for a decade or more." Wine Express made a special arrangement with the winery to bring it to our customers at a case price of over 40% off the regular retail! Don't miss it!

Opulence and Elegance All In One!
Having really enjoyed the Alta Cab, I had pretty high expectations for their Bordeaux Blend... and it certainly overdelivered on quality and value. This is a well put together wine with lots of forward, dark berry fruit, spice and floral notes but exudes finesse and elegance on the palate through the long and lovely finish. Drinking nicely now, but this one is sure to improve with some age.

WOW! Best of Both Worlds
This is very refined yet fruit forward Napa blend that's sure to please any crowd. I made a note to myself to stock up on more. The finish goes for days without any flab.. just super balanced and delicious.

A Mouth Filling Red Blend at a Value!
I found the Alta do be a deliciously balanced Bordeaux style wine. It's a mouth full of red berries with a lengthy almost velvet finish.

A shopper on Nov 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave this wine 90 points saying "Dusty tannin and a weight of leather saddle permeate the nose and palate, with graphite puncturing through the soft texture and finish." Cheers!
