Winemaker Notes

The Antica Napa Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon offers delicious purity of fruit with enticing violet and fresh berry scents of blueberry, blackberry and red currant. The wine is full-bodied, yet graceful and supple, ending with a long, pure, and persistent finish.

Antica is an Antinori Family estate in Napa Valley. The family's winemaking heritage dates back 26 generations and more than 600 years in Italy. 'Antica' represents Antinori California, and fulfills the family's longstanding desire to produce wines with personalityand style in Napa Valley. The estate is located in a high elevation valley in the eastern mountains of Napa Valley. It is the Antinori Family's belief that the high elevations, hilly terrain, and rocky soils of the estate are ideal for winegrowing.

About the Vineyard:
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested from nine individual vineyard blocks, divided between five distinct clones. The estate's Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are planted up to an elevation of 1,800 feet allowing excellent air movement in the well-drained, volcanic soils.

About the 2009 Vintage:
Temperatures throughout the winter months were mild with below normal rainfall, marking a third consecutive year of drought conditions for Napa Valley. A dry spring with slightly higher temperatures than normal provided excellent weather conditions forfl owering and uniform fruit set. Dry conditions prevailed throughout the summer and early fall. Warm daytime temperatures along with cool night time temperatures into the autumn months assured healthy and completely ripe Cabernet Sauvignon grapes rich in winemaking potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as a bit more reticent and inward next to the superb 2008, but it, too, is a gorgeous wine. Dark red fruit, licorice, smoke and tar are some of the nuances that flow from this layered, gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 was bottled just two months ago. It will almost certainly be even better in a few years’ time. A mid-weight, gracious wine, the 2009 should drink well to age 20 or so. In 2009 the blend includes 1.5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.

Wine & Spirits
The wine's Atlas Peak tannins are softer and gentler than you might expect, its structure benefiting from the acidity of the fruit. That comes across in green herb scents refreshing the plush, rip plum flavors. It's generous and open, easy to enjoy with roast lamb.

Antica, Atlas Peak, Napa Valley, California
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
ANTICA is a symbol for Antinori California and expresses in Italian the Antinori family's passion for winemaking passed along 26 generations.

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

The 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.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
