Antica (Antinori) Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$54.99

 94 Points                                                        San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 Wines of 2012! The new chapter from Tuscany's legendary Piero Antinori's Atlas Peak project has found its footing with a distinctive Antica Napa Cabernet.      94 Points Robert Parker: "A beautifully elegant, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon from the Antinori outpost in Napa Valley, their 2013 has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful, sweet kiss of pure blackcurrant fruit, licorice and forest floor. Full-bodied, but with creamy texture, sweet, beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol, this is an impressively well-crafted wine that’s drinkable now, but should evolve nicely for another 15-20 years.."

Another wine that has improved with age. Initial notes of vanilla are complimented with black fruits and coffee notes. Love length and presence on the mid palate. Let this rest for a little while longer.

Nice oak on the nose. Palate is dominated by vanilla. A big surprise from this producer. Good structure, but no further explanation is required.

I liked this wine enough to text it the morning after. Would drink again. Rich, powerful, bold. This is how I felt after I drank it, not necessarily how I would describe the wine.
