Winemaker Notes

Aromas of coffee beans, black currants and hard herbs like rosemary and thyme. Rich, smooth and silky blackberry coulis with cola soy and lavender. Finish is the classic Rutherford dust flowing into soft powdery

tannins of coco and cinnamon that will resolve over aging. A great example of classic Cabernet Sauvignon that is complex and always compelling.

JS 97
James Suckling
Aromas of lavender, blackberries and blueberries follow through to a full body, with tight and velvety tannins that are polished and tight. Lovely finish. Needs two or three years to come together. Try in 2021.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 100% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisolli is very deep purple-black in color and opens with very serious notes of blackcurrant cordial, plum preserves, baked cherries and blackberry compote with hints of dried Provence herbs, tobacco leaf and black pepper plus a waft of cedar chest. Big, rich, full and solidly structured with super ripe, grainy tannins and great freshness, it finishes long with a menthol lift. 170 cases produced.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Compact, with juicy red and black currant preserve flavors balled up in the middle of a range of sleek iron, floral and cedar notes. Features a focused and persistent finish. Best from 2023 through 2035.

Amici, California
Amici Winery Video
In the 1990's, a group of friends with a passion for good wine and fun times together crushed a few tons of grapes in the Napa Valley for their personal cellars. The resulting wine was so well-received that they started producing wine the very next year to share with the public. They chose to name the wine, appropriately, Amici ("friends" in Italian).

Amici's owners — John Harris, Bob and Celia Shepard, and Bart Woytowicz—are all great friends with a passion for making and enjoying great wine. At Amici the focus is on quality, not quantity. Because they insist on keeping the production small, they can carefully control the process of creating each wine, crafting what they like to consider a small work of art in each bottle.

What started as a few friends crushing some grapes for fun is now an award-winning premium wine known around the country, but one thing will never change: Amici is a wine created by friends, for friends.

Rutherford Wine

Napa Valley, California

The Rutherford sub-region of Napa Valley centers on the town of Rutherford and covers some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard real estate, spanning from the Mayacamas in the west, to the Vaca Mountains on the other side of the valley.

Inside of the Rutherford AVA, bordering the Mayacamas, is a stretch of uplands called the Rutherford Bench. (These bench lands technically run the length of Oakville as well). Mountain runoff creates deep, well-drained, alluvial soils on the bench, giving vine roots plenty of reason to permeate deep into the ground. The result is wine with great structure and complexity.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvingons and Bordeaux Blends garner substantial attention for their enticing fragrances of dusty earth and dried herbs, broad and juicy mid-palates and lush and fine-grained tannins. The sub-appellation claims some of the valley’s most prized vineyards today, namely Caymus, Rubicon and Beckstoffer Georges III.

It is also home to Napa’s most influential and historic personalities. Thomas Rutherford, responsible for the appellation's name, made serious investments here in grape growing and wine production between the years of 1850 to 1880. Gustave Niebaum purchased a large swath of land and completed his winery in 1887, calling it “Inglenook.” Today this remains the oldest bonded winery in California. Georges Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, making it the oldest continuous winery in the state. Latour also hired the famous enologist, André Tchelistcheff, a man credited for single-handedly defining the modern Napa winemaking style.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
