Winemaker Notes

This 2016 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, and black olive with savory hints of rosemary. Full bodied palate 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.

Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve comes mostly from the George III and Missouri Hopper Vineyard and is a cellar selection. It’s 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. Want a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon for under 100 dollars? Buy this.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc aged 22 months in 100% new French oak. 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 plus a waft of pencil shavings. Full, firm and taut, it is packed with layered, crunchy black fruits, finishing long and structured.

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. Try in 2019.

Amici The Amici Team Winery Image
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.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all products

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
