/ Cherry aromas followed by tea and sweet tobacco notes. Earthy and crisp with acidic red fruit flavors dominating the palate. Lean, racy close.
/ The 2005 Antu Ninquen Cabernet Sauvignon-Carminare was aged for 18 months in French oak. Purple-colored, it offers up aromas of scorched earth, smoke, toast, blueberries and black currants. Firmly structured, medium to full-bodied, and still a bit tight, this wine has plenty of fruit and the balance to evolve for 3-5 years.
/ Has a nice gutsy feel, showing briar, dark cherry and currant fruit, with some bacony toast.
100 Great Italian Wines/ Deep red with purple tints, quite leathery and gamey but lifted fruit from mountain vineyards. Fine complexity. A polished serious Cabernet.
Buying Guide/ Very dark and oaky, with a tarry, black, crusty streak on the nose. Very ripe and tight, with cassis, black cherry and tobacco flavors. A seriously intense wine.
Antu Ninquen Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenere 2008 - 90 Points, eRobertParker.com/ Cabernet Sauvignon 70%, Carmenere 30%; opaque purple; dense black fruits, ripe, succulent fruit.
Antu Ninquen Cabernet Sauvignon-Carmenere 2011 - 89 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a dark, concentrated blend with minty oak, lactic aromas, boysenberry and blackberry on the bouquet. The palate is muscular and clampy, with resiny, oak-based grab to go with full tannins. Flavors of boyseberry, chocolate, toast and oak end in a warm, oaky finish.
