Alta-Cabernet Sauvignon-"Oso Malo" Napa Valley-2009

Cabernet Sauvignon
"Oso Malo" Napa Valley


Waaaaaay up on Atlas Peak is Alta's 10 acre "Altura Vineyard." Most of the fruit is sold to neighbor John Kongsgaard for his Cab. Alta keeps enough of their own grapes to make 200 cases.
This is their first release, and they under-priced the wine to get us all hooked. This Cabernet keeps no secrets...smell and taste its dark berry/cherry fruit, low acid, spicy, generously oaked (adding to its creamy mouthfeel, vanilla beans and chocolate-filled croissants straight from the overn) and ready to be enjoyed. Finally, hard not to be drawn to "Oso Malo" - Bad Bear. Must be bears in them thar hills!
