Finca Antigua or “Old Estate”, was given this name in honor of old vines which yield such impressive wines. The Finca Antigua Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in stainless steel takes and aged 10 months in American oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

This 100% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has depth and concentration with a deep garnet core and blue iridescence rim. Robust aromas of thyme, rosemary and fennel are due to the wild herbs that are interspersed throughout the vineyard as over 50 % is left intentionally unplanted to foster biodiversity. The backbone of acidity for this wine comes from the diurnal shift and cooling influence of the high elevation of almost 3,000 feet above sea level. 4 days of skin maceration along with a deliberately slow 28 day fermentation allow for both skin and oak tannin to provide structure and grip.    

Food Pairing

Recommended especially for medium-aged sheep and goat’s milk cheeses. With meat, it is best as an accompaniment to lamb and goat. It can also be matched with veal and beef. Ideal for stews, such as bean stew.
