Antica Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Townsend Vineyard 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: Doesn't say so on the label, but this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Atlas Peak area. Very dry and tannic, with an astringent lockdown, it's functionally undrinkable now, but it does show the intensity of this mountainous region for Cabernet, with explosive blackberry, blueberry and black currant flavors. All indications are that it's an ager. Hold until 2015, at the very least. (Apr 2012)

Townsend Vineyard s architecture is based on Antinori s planting philosophy for new vineyards in Tuscany.
