Rating: 93 Points-Connoisseur's Guide

Tasting Notes: Connoisseur's Guide sez: “Immediately impressing with its sense of crafting and polish and as rich and refined in flavor as it is in aroma, the latest Antaeus marries the deep, dark berry fruit of Zinfandel with a bit of Cabernet cassis and is structured long distinctly claret-like lines. It is layered and long and thoroughly involving right now, but its balance and youthful vitality are the markers of a wine that will grow effortlessly.”
Galaxy Notes: Antaeus, the son of Water and Earth in Greek mythology, is the symbol of strength derived from the soil. So too this wine, deriving strength from the matching of site and grape on every part of our land. The 2012 Antaeus is composed of 53% Zinfandel, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% Merlot. The intensity derived from red clay soils is here in full, while the coolness of our site provides the acid balance so essential to a wine’s grace and longevity. Made with Estate grown, Certified Organic Grapes.
