Wine Review: This midnight purple colored “Reserve” level Cabernet Sauvignon from Amici opens with blackberry, dark chocolate, and toasted coconut bouquet with hints of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and juicy. The flavor profile is a stewed black plum, blackberry, and toasted coconut blend with notes of stony minerality and milk chocolate. I also detected hints of Good n’ Plenty and cardamom in the aftertaste. The finish is dry and its bold tannins build-up and stick around for quite some time. Given the amount of acidity and tannins in this youthful wine, I would stash it away in the cellar for quite a while. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This 2019 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 dark cherry give way to notes of cedar box and currant. The palate is dense and powerful with laser-like precision. Savory and thick with notes of blackberry cobbler and baker’s chocolate, the wine is also layered with hints of black raspberry and new leather. A long, fruit-driven finish with polished tannins leaves you wanting another sip.
