About Our Ratings

Antica 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The Antinori Estate is in the Atlas Peak Distict of Napa Valley, the same region as the famous Stagecoach vineyard. The estate vineyards are planted up to 1,800 feet above the Napa Valley floor, in the volcanic soil series Boomer Gravelly Loam, Perkins Gravelly Loam and Aiken Loam. The vineyards are planted between various distinct Cabernet Sauvignon clones, providing further complexity in aromatics and flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this wine came from up to 23-year-old vines and were harvested from fourteen vineyard blocks that each have their own identifiable qualities. In the superb 2012 vintage the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit enjoyed a long, slow ripening period through September and into October and ripened fully to provide dark color, rich varietal purity, and ageworthiness. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 16 months in 100% French oak barrels. Robert Parker scored it 90+ saying "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is dominated by earthy, loamy minerality, red and blackcurrants, and hints of baking spices and cedarwood. Tightly-knit, medium to full-bodied, and built for the long-term, it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and should last for 15 or more years."
