Winemaker Notes
Aromas of black cherry and cassis. A rich, lush palate with black cherry, cedar box and savory Herb de Provence, leading to a finish of dark powdered chocolate and baked plum. Lush minerality and richness emblematic of the 2016 vintage.

    The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve …another deep, rich, powerful wine from this estate that has lots of gravelly minerality and dark chocolate notes as well as terrific cassis and blackberry fruits. About as classic as they come, it’s a smoking value and certainly competes with the single vineyards, which are more than twice the price. (1/2019)

    Youthful, this wine is blended with small amounts of Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Together, they form a core of earthy cedar. Dark cherry, black currant and dark chocolate melt on the palate into a velvety whole. Editors’ Choice.

    Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of flowers and oyster shell. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins that are polished and very pretty. Tight and focused. Lovely finish. (11/2018)

    The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve … Fruit comes predominantly from Beckstoffer Georges III, Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper and Beckstoffer Bourn. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers beautiful crème de cassis, preserved plums, Black Forest cake and camphor with hints of chocolate box, aniseed and lavender. Full, firm and taut, it is packed with layered, crunchy black fruits, finishing long and structured. (LPB) (10/2018)

    “Amici’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is gorgeous and also the hidden gem in this range of mostly vineyard-designates. Deep, ample and explosive, the Reserve packs a real punch. Dark red cherry, tobacco, scorched earth, lavender, raspberry jam and crème de cassis all develop in the glass. “(AG) 93+ (12/2018)
