Mission Briefing


Altvs Shrugged

This dense, dark and richly layered wine drinks beautifully for a 2009 - and it shows such aging potential that we recommend that you enjoy some now - but stash enough away to enjoy for the next decade or more.

Altvs (“Altus”) is a special project of Merus Wines, whose mission is to craft small lots of wines of remarkable quality and distinction. The Altvs wine further elevates this lofty goal by delivering a drinking experience that rivals the best Cabernets of the Napa Valley.

Today’s 2009 Altvs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a delectable, respectable, collectible, ineffable wine that we have no problem placing on a pedestal.

Enjoy this delicious, classic Napa Cab now, and savor for the next 10+ years.

Tasting Profile


This wine possesses a dark crimson heart that transitions quickly to brilliant ruby at the meniscus.


Bold aromas of dense and concentrated black cherry, subtle tobacco, clove, and dry aged meat make the mouth water in anticipation.


Deep, concentrated cherry and cranberry, berry bramble, cocoa dust, braised fig, braised plum, cinnamon, and clove.


Very long and gradually drying, with dark fruits persisting longest at the edges of the palate.


We would enjoy this Cabernet with a classic filet mignon or a grilled portobello mushroom on a seeded bun.
