Antica Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Atlas Peak Townsend Vineyard 2019

$120

Frankly ripe but also very pure, with a beautifully rendered core of cassis, cherry reduction and violet notes that glide through with precision. The finish is underscored by a sparkle of anise and iron-tinged minerality, adding a subtle counterpoint to the fruit. Long and very fine-grained. Best from 2023 through 2036. 849 cases made.
