A medium-bodied wine, rich and flavorful with prominent pear and white peach notes with additional spice notes on the palate. Its texture is creamy yet crisp, with the acid allowing the wine to have focus and gusto and the purity of the fruit to shine.

2003 Antica Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested from a single vineyard, 24 acres in size. This vineyard is now called Townsend. Initially this wine was not released but with the passage of time, the wine exhibited the qualities that the Antinori Family looks for in a wine: purity of fruit, balance, and finesse. This wine is well balanced with a hint of acidity which produced a more elegant than powerful wine, where the nose prevails over the palate. With these wine qualities, the Antinori Family made this wine available through the Antica Napa Valley hospitality center.

2013 Antica Napa Valley Pinot Noir
Pinot noir grapes for Antica Napa Valley’s Estate bottling were harvested on September 19th and 21st at an average Brix of 24.2. The 10 acre vineyard block selected by the winemaking team is planted to a mix of Dijon clones 115 (~33%), 777 (~33%) and 667 (~33%). The estate’s lowest elevation (1,450 feet) is on the floor of Foss Valley, which typically is above the fog that blankets Napa Valley below in the early morning hours throughout the summer months. This is home to our Pinot noir grapes. Though it might seem counterintuitive, nighttime temperatures are cooler here than the estate’s higher elevations, contributing to the Pinot noir’s aromas and flavors while maintaining acidity for the proper balance in the finished wine.
Vinification: The 2013 Pinot noir was entirely destemmed and sorted on the crushpad. Then the grapes were allowed to cold soak for 3 days at 55 degrees in our smallest stainless steel fermenter. When the cold soak was complete, the must was inoculated and brought to a fermentation temperature averaging 78 degrees. The wines were pumped over 3 times per day for the first 4 days of fermentation, with fewer pumpovers and delestage techniques employed after the must reached 15 Brix. The total time in vat for the 2013 Pinot noir averaged 12 days. The must was drained and pressed at 0 degrees Brix. The wine was allowed to settle in stainless steel tank once it finished alcoholic fermentation before being racked into French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and elevage. The 2013 Pinot noir remained in barrels for 7 months on its light fermentation lees before being racked into tank for bottling in May of 2014.
Taste: The 2013 is comfortably Pinot noir, with Bing cherry, plum and brambly fruit aromas. The wine offers a palate-cleansing freshness and the tannins are present but silky and a plush texture. It has presence and character, and is medium-bodied and offers elegance rather than power on the mid-palate. There is very little oak influence, allowing the wine and the Estate vineyards to shine through and offer a unique perspective on Pinot noir when grown in the Atlas Peak District of Napa Valley, a rather little-known mix of variety and location.

2013 Antica Napa Valley Sangiovese
The Antica Napa Valley 2013 Sangiovese is part of our Soprattutto Collection of wines. Soprattutto in Italian means “above all”. A small 2% of the Antica estate is planted to Sangiovese from vines that were brought from Montalcino to Napa Valley in 1987. This Sangiovese is a striking wine and “above all” shows uncompromising varietal pureness, though in a most concentrated and elaborate form. This is what great Sangiovese grown in Napa Valley is all about. There’s so much happening in the aromas with the wine bringing you black cherry, spice, and licorice in equal measure. No one element overpowers the next. The mouthfeel is also tight and bright with the kind of fruit intensity and soft textured tannins that promises long cellar aging. The longer the wine stays in the glass, the more it offers in terms of complexity and intensity. This Napa Valley Sangiovese is only at the beginning of a long road ahead.
