Antica (Antinori)

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


I loved this #oldworld #newworld blend to create a marvelous #newcalifornia obvious long maceration with deep ruby color, intense primary aromas of dark cherries, cassis, mint and capsicum, secondary of dark chocolate and tertiary of sage or ash. The tannins are very soft and the oak and alcohol are very balanced and integrated with the whole of the wine. Can age. Drink now until 2030 — 7 years ago

Had this at an Antinori tasting last week. I was equally impressed.

Well, well. Nightcap. At times, I believe that I've gotten the whole #newcalifornia thing wrong. Then this happens. — 10 years ago

Erik Grahn's vintage! Great depth of fruit. Weeks vineyard in between Sebastopol and Occidental. 40%new oak and it holds well. Really excited about this new project from a young local winemaker. #CArising #newcalifornia #pinotnoir — 8 years ago

Glad I have much more of this. Incredibly #savoury with heaps of character & life. #newcalifornia before it became a rundown overly used #hipster term. This is honest winemaking at its best minus the slick, millennial social media mechanizations. Get some if you can. — 9 years ago
