2008 Antics Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
In 2008 we decided to declassify our Respite Cabernet Sauvignon and create a fun, easy-to-love wine that people could enjoy every night. Throughout the growing season our intention had been to make and bottle this wine under our Respite label so the vineyards received the same careful attention, the grapes were hand-sorted as usual, and the winery took the same care during crush and fermentation. In the end though we decided that Mother Nature had thrown us too much of a curveball that year. We knew this wine was good, but it wasn't quite up to the level that we have set for our main label. So we did some brainstorming for a name that was unique but complimented the name Respite, created a simple yet visually striking label design, and a new member of the Reichel Vineyard wines was born.
Dark garnet in color with deep aromas of cassis, black cherry, caramel, plum, and mocha. The mid-palate is broad and shows impressive flavors of blackberry, dried fig, cigar box, black olive, kumquat and round silky tannins. The structured acid that Alexander Valley is so well known for keeps the wine lively and well balanced.
Production: 300 cases of 750ml bottles
