  1. Amici Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#54028

    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, December 5, 2021
    Perfumed cabernet with aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries, raspberries, thyme, violets, crushed stones and cloves. Full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins. Structured and concentrated. Better after 2023.
    RP92+92–94 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 18th Mar 2021
    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it charges out of the gate with loads of blueberry preserves and stewed black plums notes on the nose with faint suggestions of redcurrant jelly and rose hip tea plus a waft of wild sage. Full-bodied and jam-packed with ripe black and blue fruit, it has a soft texture and perfumed finish. 10,000 cases are due to be made. (Lisa Perrotti-Brown)

    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is polished, nuanced and so delicious. Silky and floral, with vibrant red-toned fruit, the Napa Valley Cabernet delivers the goods. It is a positively stellar wine from Amici. I loved it. (Antonio Galloni)
    JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/10/2022
    Made with the goal of great Napa Cabernet at $50 bucks, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley succeeds admirably, offering gorgeous cassis, violet, and chocolaty aromatics as well as medium to full-bodied richness, a balanced, layered mouthfeel, and silky tannins. It competes with wines at three times the cost. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 75% new barrels. (Jeb Dunnuck)

    2016 / 750 ml. | 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.

  4. Sordo Barolo

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#54612

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, August 4, 2020
    A very fine-tannined red with creamy, polished tannins that run the length of the wine. It’s medium-bodied with pretty length and finesse. Drink or hold.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
    The Sordo 2016 Barolo is a well-priced and readily available wine. It is elegantly downplayed and subtle, offering typical Nebbiolo aromas of wild cherry, rose, licorice, cola and aniseed. It spreads over the palate with a fine and delicate texture, and you don’t feel its power until those youthful tannins kick in. Those tannins are a bit too aggressive now, so give it time. Winemaking involves extended maceration with submerged cap and concludes with 24 months in traditional Slavonian oak casks. An ample 150,000 bottles were made.
