Product Overview

The 2016 Amici Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve highlights the lush, ripe fruit and "Rutherford Dust" of valley floor vineyards, along with the structure and ageability of Napa Valley's best mountain appellations. The wine leads with aromas of dark roasted vanilla bean, cedar box, black currant, and black olive, with a savory hint of rosemary. Its full-bodied palate of rich, dark, cocoa powder, soy, sweet dark cherry, and boysenberry juice shows lush tannins leading to a finish of refreshing, mountain tannins and brown spice.

Varietal Composition: 90 Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 Malbec, 3 Petit Verdot, 2 Cabernet Franc
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: Aged 20 months in French oak, 100 percent new
Winemaker: Tony Biagi

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. Fruit comes predominantly from Beckstoffer Georges III, Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper and Beckstoffer Bourn. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers beautiful cr√É®me de cassis, preserved plums, Black Forest cake and camphor with hints of chocolate box, aniseed and lavender plus a waft of pencil shavings. Full, firm and taut, it is packed with layered, crunchy black fruits, finishing long and structured. 925 cases produced." -LPB, 10/29/18

"Amici's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is gorgeous and also the hidden gem in this range of mostly vineyard-designates. Deep, ample and explosive, the Reserve packs a real punch. Dark red cherry, tobacco, scorched earth, lavender, raspberry jam and cr√É®me de cassis all develop in the glass. Today. the 2016 comes across as still in need of a few more years in bottle to be at its very best, but it is undoubtedly very fine. Vineyard sources are Georges III, Missouri Hopper, Bourn and Kenefick Ranch." -AG, Dec/2018
