The Wine Advocate

A beautifully elegant, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon from the Antinori outpost in Napa Valley, their 2013 has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful, sweet kiss of pure blackcurrant fruit, licorice and forest floor. Full-bodied, but with creamy texture, sweet, beautifully integrated acidity, tannin and alcohol, this is an impressively well-crafted wine that’s drinkable now, but should evolve nicely for another 15-20 years.

James Suckling

Intriguing aromas of walnut, shiitake mushroom and dark fruits follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a bright finish. A vivid and silky mouthfeel. Long finish. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast

Elegant and on the more austere side of the variety, this wine is graceful and complex. Tight-grained waves of cherry, cranberry and cassis marry well with its velvety texture and restrained use of oak.

Wine & Spirits

Antinori’s 1,200-acre estate in the eastern hills of Napa includes 600 acres of vines, the reds planted on rocky soils at elevations that reach 1,800 feet, well above the fog line. The sunniness of the spot comes across in the initial scents of baked sour cherries and peaches, along with tough tannins that take days of air to relent. The mountain-grown tannins are less bitter 24 hours later, and with 48 hours, the fruit and tannins have bonded into a sour cherry and mineral weave, with the warm spice of the sunny days and the cool freshness of fruit preserved by nights at high elevation. Built to cellar.

Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-structured wine that combines power with richness. Bright aromas of red currant and plum lead to complex flavors of blackberry and mocha. On the palate the wine shows excellent balance and expression of fruit framed by firm, sweet tannins that bring elegance and finesse to the finish.
