ANTICA [Mountain Select] Napa Cabernet (2018)
Deep purple-black in color with vibrant, expressive aromas of black currant, crushed blueberry and blackberry. The wine is full bodied, with a wonderful richness and depth on the palate and firm, ripe tannins. The long, savory flavors provide generosity to the persistent finish.
Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
Moving to the two reds, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Select checks in s 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Revealing a deep ruby/purple color as well as a classic Cabernet nose of red and black currants, green tobacco, cedarwood, and Asian spices, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless, elegant texture, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. This is a complex, satisfying, impeccably made Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.
