Winemaker Notes

The Amici Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is always a wine of freshness driven by tannins, and the 2017 is no different. Capturing the essence of mountain-grown fruit, the wine is powerful yet graceful, with perfumed aromas of violets, fresh tobacco and blackberry. The savory, dense palate features licorice flavors along with juicy blackberry underlain with spearmint and loam. Strong, chalky mountain tannins that are already beginning to soften showing the age-ability of this wine.

James Suckling
Intense blackberry and blueberry aromas with cedar, lavender, hints of sage and currants. Full body and creamy tannins that are chewy, yet very fine-grained. Lovely creaminess to this. 100% cabernet sauvignon. Needs two or three years to soften. Try after 2021.

Jeb Dunnuck
A new release from this team, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District comes from the highest site in the appellation and is 100% Cabernet aged 22 months in new French oak. It’s a tight, focused, unquestionably mountain-styled wine (it’s tannic) yet has wonderfully pure, cooler fruit as well as complex notes of sappy green herbs, graphite, licorice, and spice. With medium to full-bodied richness, good concentration, and integrated acidity and tannins, it’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.

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.

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 wine. 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.
