Winemaker's Notes:

This 2008 estate wine has a stunning concentration and purity of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Aromas of sweet black currant and cherry are interwoven with earth, spice and roasted coffee. This full-bodied and well-textured wine offers great intensity of flavors with opulent, sweet tannins giving a multi-layered finish.

About Antica:

ANTICA is a symbol for Antinori California and expresses in Italian our family's passion for winemaking passed along 26 generations.

Napa Valley has a special place in my heart beginning with my first visit in 1966, having the free spirit coming from a new frontier, a wonderful history, and the potential to produce world-class wines.

Our wine estate is located on a high plain in the eastern mountains of the celebrated Napa Valley. Its hilly terrain, rocky soils, high elevations and beautiful landscape create above all an estate ideal for winegrowing.
