Antica 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
In the cool 2011 vintage Antica did not bottle their flagship Townsend Cabernet, opting instead to use that fruit to strengthen their regular bottling. And strengthen it they did. The Townsend Vineyard fruit on this Antinori Estate on Atlas Peak, is farmed at 1,460 feet elevation. It has deep concentration and rich, bold character. Chief Enologist Renzo Cotarella carefully constructed a stunningly successful Cab aging 15 months in new French oak barrels. Wine Advocate scored it 91-93 saying "The estate’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon wraps around the palate with lovely depth in its expressive, resonant fruit, showing no hard edges and excellent balance. Espresso, mocha, plums, cloves and freshly cut flowers are all layered into the vibrant, delineated finish. The energy and tension of the 2011 are super-impressive. Antica did not bottle their flagship Townsend Cabernet, opting instead to use that fruit to strengthen their regular bottling. Based on the sample I tasted, that seems to have been a great decision. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026." And Antonio Galloni scored it 92 saying "Antica's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a gorgeous, beguiling bouquet laced with dark red cherries, cinnamon, new leather and mint. Floral and spice notes continue to develop in a soft, pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon that is built for near-term pleasure. The 2011 impresses for its gracious personality and overall balance."
