Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon opens with lovely aromas of blackberry, licorice whip, currant, vanilla and hints of cedar. On the palate, the medium- to full-bodied wine has a dense, juicy mouthfeel with blackberry compote and rhubarb pie notes along with tart cherry and toasted oak. A dark chocolatey texture carries through the strong finish with a pop of dark fruit and lingering oak spice.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, 2% Petite Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah

Beautiful aromas of blackcurrants, ink and some black truffle. Medium-bodied, linear and tight with firm and silky tannins. Some spice and hazelnut in the aftertaste. Drink now or hold.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Olema is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot, 2% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc aged 14 months in 50% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, it gives up open-knit, expressive blackberry pie, plum preserves and cassis scents with wafts of unsmoked cigars and garrigue with a waft of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruits, supported by soft tannins, finishing earthy. Impressive feat this vintage! 22,000 cases produced.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County is also terrific. Based on 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc, brought up in 50% new French oak, this medium-bodied, fresh, pure, and beautifully balanced effort offers loads of cassis fruits as well as notes of spice and flowery incense. It’s another screaming value by Jesse Fox and Tony Biagi.

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.

While Sonoma County is acclaimed—and rightfully so—for its Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Zinfandels, it also produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the region’s 18 American Viticultural Areas, only a handful produce top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon. These appellations include Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons made in these appellations can offer a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruit notes such as blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, black cherry and raspberry often are accompanied by hints of graphite, dusty earth, cigar box, toast and vanilla. The varietal has a rich history in Sonoma, and some of these Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet-based blends rival the best from Napa Valley.
