Item #: 396

WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2023
A dense color in the glass, this bottling offers toasty oak, roasted red fruit and charred beef aromas on the nose. There’s a fine tannic line to the palate, where boysenberry, pepper and toasted oak flavors align. (Matt Kettmann)

Substance Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 39708

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 12, 2021
Currants, flowers and walnuts on the nose. Medium-bodied with a pretty core of fruit and fine tannins and a crisp finish. Lead pencil. Fresh. Compact. Delicate and delicious. Enjoy. Drink or hold.
JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/6/2021
Juicy blue fruits, leafy tobacco, violets, and orange blossom notes all emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Cs and it’s medium to full-bodied, has a beautifully balanced, fruit-forward style, no hard edges, and a great finish. It’s no simple fruit bomb and has notable structure, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It reminds me of a top Cru Bourgeois from Bordeaux and represents a stunning value. Drink it over the coming 7–8 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2021
A vibrant red, easygoing and snappy, with black cherry, licorice and dusky spice flavors. Drink now through 2026. 315,000 cases made. (Tim Fish)

Amici Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 54028

JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, March 6, 2023
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. Better after 2025. (James Suckling)
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Dec 2023
Standing out as a solid value in Napa Cabernet, Amici’s 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is slightly herbal, with a touch of matchstick on the nose as well, but those elements give way to deep cassis notes and hints of cedar. A blend of several vineyards, matured in 65% new French oak, it’s medium to full-bodied and tightly wound but reasonably textured, with a long, velvety finish. Drink it over the next decade or so. (Joe Czerwinski)
JD90+90–92 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2023
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. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2023
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 élevage (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. (Joe Czerwinski)
VN90+90–92 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2023
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 (Antonio Galloni)

Item #: 51429

WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2023
This broad, spicy wine offers ample oak accents over good, dark plums and blueberries, while fine-grained tannins firm up the mouthfeel just enough. Cinnamon, cedar and cloves all contribute to the welcoming aromas and flavors. (Jim Gordon)

RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Oct 2020
Dark ruby with soft purple highlights, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has an impactful and precise nose of juicy plum, dark cherry and blackberry essence that waft with elegant French oak tones of vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a succulent mouthfeel with oak flavors that bind effortlessly to juicy, plump and dark blackberry essence with subtle flavors of dried herbs and bitter dark chocolate. With a long, drawn-out finish, the wine displays all of its complexities as it lingers on the palate with persistence and a tannic grip. This wine is about layers and texture. Give it a try! (Anthony Mueller)
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2020
Fresh herb and flower aromas are out front, followed by notes of spice and plum. The palate is layered and restrained, with plenty of acidity and tannic structure supporting it all. It’s far from a big bruiser, but this is serious Cabernet, with impeccable balance. (Sean P. Sullivan)
VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2020
Full, dark red. Cool aromas of redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice, black pepper and menthol. Very suave and smooth on entry, then pure but reticent in the middle palate, conveying subtle salinity to the flavors of dark berries, soil, graphite and licorice. No easy sweetness here! This classically dry, Old World-style Cabernet is still a bit cool and laid-back but should evolve gracefully. Finishes with firm but fine-grained tannins and subtle savory grip. But not quite the depth for an even higher rating. (Stephen Tanzer)
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/20
For this wine, Greg Harrington and Brandon Moss blend fruit from sources such as Phinny Hill and Dionysus with grapes from their estate vineyards. All about structure at the moment, this is very firm with a tannic spine. It needs time to get beyond its initial notes of violets and sealing wax and reveal the dark fruit within. Cellar.
