New release from Amici Cellars who are making some of Napa Valley's best Cabernets!

96 Points James Suckling: "Lots of walnut, chocolate, currant and thyme character to this with some wet earth and forest fruit. Vibrant nose. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit and ripe tannins. Flavorful finish. Solid red. Drink or hold."

95 Points Robert Parker:
"A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the Amici Cellars 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is deep garnet-purple in color, striding confidently out of the glass with classic notes of baked plums, blackberry pie and blackcurrant cordial plus hints of cedar, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and featuring impressively pure black fruit flavors, the palate delivers a firm texture of ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing long, layered and with lovely freshness."

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
"Even more impressive, the Amici Cellars 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve offers a denser purple hue to go with terrific notes of crème de cassis, licorice, scorched earth, camphor, and tobacco leaf. With medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate, it has nicely integrated oak, building yet sweet tannins, and a great, great finish. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and drink brilliantly for 15 years or more."

This 2018 Amici Cellars Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 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.  Aromas of blackberry, black currant and blueberry compote give way to notes of cedar box, soy, and currant. The palate is dense and viscous with laser-like precision. Richly fruitforward with black raspberry, black plum and blackberry cobbler, the wine is also layered with spice, from savory herbs to vanilla and hazelnut. A long, fruit-driven finish leaves you wanting another sip.
