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)

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)

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)

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 #: 55544

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, July 2, 2019
Ripe, boysenberry and cherry aromas are nicely augmented with earthy, woody, savory notes. The palate has a succulent core of rich, cherry and plum flavors. Holds well on the finish. Drink now.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Apr 2020
The 2016 Pinot Noir Palmer Creek Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and scents of red and black cherries with earthy nuances of forest floor, mushroom and turned earth plus hints of dried flowers. Medium-bodied, softly framed and silky, it offers concentrated, earth-tinged fruits and a juicy finish. 217 cases produced.
