Winemaking Notes

This 2015 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 dark roasted vanilla bean, cedar box, black currant, black olive savory hints of rosemary. Full bodied pallet of rich dark coco powder, soy, sweet dark cherry and boysenberry juice. Lush tannins leading to a finish or refreshing mountain tannins and brown spice.

“This is tight and very firm and showing beautiful fruit. Full body, silky and reserved. Tension. Focused. All here. An excellent wine. Drink or hold.”

Wine Advocate

“Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and nose of crème de cassis and blueberry preserves with an undercurrent of cedar, roses, bay leaves and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied with a soft, plush texture and loads of herbal and spice accents to the black and blue fruit flavors, it has a long, earthy finish.”

“Moving to the reserves, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve offers more depth and richness, with lots of plum, currants, candied violets and exotic flower aroma and flavors. There’s a subtle forest floor note as well, and this medium to full-bodied effort has ripe tannin, beautiful purity and fine, fine tannin.”
