Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Amici Cellars Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is a classic Chardonnay with finesse and elegance and a balance of density and fruit. Enticing honey roasted grains, rustic green apple pie, apricot and lemon curd lead to a delicious palate of chewy golden pineapple, bartlett pear, caramel and lemon custard. This mouthwatering Chardonnay is fresh and lively with a long and rich lemon oil finish.

Moving to the four Chardonnays I was able to taste, the 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast reveals a light gold color as well as a classy nose of baked apples, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toast. It’s clean, classy, and medium-bodied, with a great finish.

Cooked-apple, yogurt and light coconut aromas follow through to the full body with layers of fruit and flavor. A little obvious, but delicious for a more upfront style.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast offers lovely butterscotch and dried apricots notes leading to wafts of poached pears and allspice. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers loads of verve and intensity, finishing on a lingering spicy note.

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.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
