The 2013 Amici Cellars Cabernet Franc comes from the famous Spring Mountain District in Napa Valley. The vineyard source for this wine sits on the eastern side of the Mayacamas at an elevation of approximately 1500 feet. The combination of morning sun and evenings cooled by mountain air allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly without major heat spikes.
The wine opens with aromas of dried cherry, cranberry and cassis, with hints of tobacco, violets, and black pepper. On the palate tart cherries and cranberries mingle with complex notes of exotic spices and dark chocolate. Velvety smooth tannins lead to along, supple finish.
