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.."

Very big wine, still could lay down for a while, but very enjoyable.

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.

I have decided to open the Antica Napa Valley by Antinori Family. I was going to wait but "oh well" ..sampling wine on "It's Journey" is all part of the learning and enjoyment of wine! On the nose I get vanilla..maybe a bit heavy..blackberry..cherry licorice..cocoa and baking spices. Nice medium body and tannins. Tastes of vanilla..dark fruit and earth. Decent Cabernet! I might update this post better aeration! Once again I love my Sunday night wine post weekend to work! Cheers everyone!@

This is fantastic! I taste a lot of stone fruit and black cherry, and fruit jam. It’s so smooth!
