International Wine Report


The 2018 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon from Amici Cellars immediately grabs your attention with its aromas of ripe black cherries and dark currents that come together with exotic spices, earthy nuances, dark chocolate, licorice and forest herbs. This full-bodied Cabernet possesses wonderful opulence and beautifully concentrated fruit, which is supported by its well-polished tannins. It continues to impress as layers of ripe dark fruits expand across the palate leading up to the long finish. This is already a pleasure to drink at this early stage, however it also has all the characteristics that indicate it will offer a long drinking window ahead.
