This special set includes three of our highly rated Cabernet Sauvignons from the outstanding 2018 vintage, plus a special 2017 cellar blend created with wine lovers in mind, in a beautiful Amici wooden box.
Included wines (one bottle each):
2017 Cellar Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville
Each year at Amici Cellars, we craft a wine we fondly named the “cellar blend.” It’s a wine that, until now, has only ever been opened by our team members: a wine made to capture the essence of Amici Cellars each year, handmade from select barrels that stuck out to our winemakers after weeks and weeks of sampling and tasting. As we were unable to make any red wines in 2020, we got together as a team and unanimously voted to share the 2017 Cellar Selection with you all.
Extremely limited, the 2017 Cellar Selection is a wine of richness and elegance, showcasing the beauty and restraint of the 2017 vintage. Similar to 2020, 2017 is a vintage that will remain in our hearts as a year of perseverance and dedication. The fruit was picked prior to the 2017 wildfires, and as we taste the wines today, we recall days driving into the evacuation zone to do punch-downs and measure sugar levels in the wine. Fortunately, the wines, like all of us, were resilient enough to withstand the challenges in their paths, and you can taste the results in this wine.
2018 Hirondelle Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Our second vintage from this beautiful Stag’s Leap District vineyard site, the 2018 Hirondelle Cabernet Sauvignon shows the region’s classic iron-rich aromas and balance on the palate. Hedonistic flavors of black cherry, bright blueberry, and dark chocolate lead into hints of bittersweet cherry and black currant. With polished tannins and hints of rosemary on the finish, the wine combines the herbal flavors of Bordeaux with California ripeness and is an incredible wine to pair with food.
2018 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
The most terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon in the Amici single-vineyard lineup, the 2018 Oakville Ranch is mineral-driven with lovely bright bing cherry and expressive vanilla notes. Black cherry, rhubarb and leather through the palate evolve into warm blackberry pie filling and hints of iron ore. Distinctly age-worthy with a balance of freshness and power, the wine finishes long and earthy.
2018 Spring Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
The Amici Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is always a wine of freshness driven by tannins, and the 2018 is no different. Capturing the essence of mountain- grown fruit, the wine is powerful yet graceful, with perfumed aromas of ripe plum, bright bing cherry and vanilla. The savory, dense palate features flavors of tart blackberry, black olive and graphite. Strong, chalky mountain tannins that are already beginning to soften in addition to the round finish show the age-ability of this wine.
