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 2014 Antaeus is composed of 52% Zinfandel, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 10% 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.
"Starting out with an exuberant and succulent mix of ripe cherries and blackberries that is confidently carried forward in the composed and concentrated young flavors that follow, this successful marriage of varieties shows indelible Zin character yet goes a step or two further in range with its own unique brand of fruity richness. It is a big wine, but it is also nicely controlled with the firm tannic structure of one that is destined to age into even better over time." 91 points Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
