In any given year, our 'Merus' and 'Altvs' bottlings offer both yin and yang expressions of the same vintage. This comes about through block differences within the vineyard, concrete vs stainless steel fermentation tanks, different approaches to coopering, amount of new oak used, how wines evolve over a two year period in barrel, and the percentage of cabernet sauvignon ultimately used. This 2015 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.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a grippy, dense and powerful red, blended with 5% Petit Verdot. Approachable in its youth, it shows strong flavors of red currant, cherry and coconut, with a lushness that lingers on the finish.

Wine SpectatorThe initial push of dark berry, cedar, spice and gravel flavors loses a little velocity on the finish, where more oak is evident. Drink now through 2025. 640 cases made.
