Winemaker Notes

The 2021 Amici Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, rich, and beautifully balanced wine. Dense aromas of dark cherry and plum are accented by hints of cocoa and creme de cassis. The full-bodied palate presents notes of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, baking spices, and toasty oak. Silky tannins are laced throughout the long finish, promising beautiful ageability for years to come.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petite Verdot

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling

Aromas of blackcurrants, iodine, oyster shell, and dark chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied with polished fine tannins that run the length of the wine with chocolate, hazelnut, and blueberries. Give it time to come together. Best after 2025.

Jeb Dunnuck
The base 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley should certainly be outstanding. It offers classic darker cassis and cherry fruits, some graphite and chocolate nuances, medium to full body, and a plush, rounded, yet concentrated profile on the palate.
The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is plump, juicy and super-expressive. A burst of dark cherry, plum, incense, tobacco and dried herbs race across the palate. Pliant and dense, with striking depth, the Napa Valley Cabernet is shaping up to be a winner.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
At “only” $50, Amici’s 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is a relative bargain in the rarefied air of Napa Valley Cabs. At this point in its 18 months of elevage (tasted in November 2022), it’s cedary but backed by ample cassis and blueberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it’s smooth, silky, and streamlined from front to back, with a lingering finish and mouthwatering berries that balance out the soft tannins and mocha overtones. Best After 2022.
