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)

Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, April 4, 2023
A cab with lots of currant and blackberry aromas with some fresh herbs such as sage and lead pencil character. Lots of crushed stone and cement as well. Medium to full body. Firm and polished, Extremely long and vivid. A blend of Hudson, Morisoli, and George III. Shows the magic of 2021. Needs two or three years to soften and come together. (James Suckling)
JD93+93–95 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2023
Always a beautiful wine, as well as one of the best values out there, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve offers lots of chocolaty red and blue fruits as well as medium to full body, an elegant, perfectly balanced mouthfeel, classic Cabernet spice, leather, and dried herbs, and a great finish. It shows the quality of the vintage and will be a no-brainer purchase. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Dec 2023
Amici’s 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve boasts intense aromas of camphor, mocha, loamy earth and dark-skinned fruit. Plums, black cherries and cassis carry over onto a medium to full-bodied palate framed by supple tannins, ending in a long, mouthwatering finish. A step up from the regular bottling, it also offers solid value for a Napa Cab, coming in at roughly $100 retail. (Joe Czerwinski)
RP92+92–94 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2023
Amici’s 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve will spend 22 months in oak before bottling. It features deep cedar and camphor notes, plus cassis and blueberry fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, richly weighted and silky in texture, it delivers a long, mouthwatering finish. Nicely done. (Joe Czerwinski)
VN91+91–94 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2023
The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve marries energy and depth. In most vintages, the Reserve is an under the radar gem. The 2021 is another terrific example. Bright acids and beams of tannin run through a core of dark fruit. Mocha, tobacco, cedar, licorice and chocolate linger. The 2021 is a bit firm, but time in bottle should take care of that. Once again, the Reserve looks like it will be one of the stars in this range. (Antonio Galloni)

Consumers take note: Barnett’s 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District is more complex and structured than the MMV bottling yet also less expensive. Sage and bay leaf join black cherries and a hint of vanilla on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is soft and easy drinking but with decent backbone and length and plentiful soft, dusty tannins on the finish. The blend includes 12% Petite Verdot. (Joe Czerwinski)

A firm red with berries, dried herbs and some warm spices on the nose. Medium to full body with firm tannins. A little short on the finish. Drink now. (James Suckling)

Still not bottled at the time I tasted it, the 2021 Papillon Red Wine is a five-variety Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot) that spends 13 months in 44% new oak. While not that complex, it does offer up bold cherry and cassis aromas on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied and velvety, with a long, almost zesty finish. (Joe Czerwinski)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 11, 2024
A dark, winey style, with linzer torte and blackberry confiture notes that feel rather steeped, as licorice, mocha and sweet tobacco notes fill in on the polished finish. For fans of the more obvious style. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2031. 18,400 cases made. (James Molesworth)

WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2023
This smooth, mouth-filling but not heavy wine is scented with black plums, black cherries and maple, followed by rich, ripe fruit flavors and a very polished texture. Light tannins add to an easy touch on the palate. (Jim Gordon)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, June 4, 2023
Notes of ripe blackberries and plum skins with sweet licorice, rose petals and pine wood. Full-bodied and a little tight with firm tannins, yet succulent and fruit-forward at the same time. Spicy and lingering finish. Better in a year or two. (James Suckling)
SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2023
Friendly and direct, with cherry pie and blackberry puree notes mixed with a light vanilla thread. Gently toasted finish. Drink now through 2027. 12,000 cases made. (James Molesworth)
