The 2021 Amici Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a captivating nose of ripe cassis, juicy black cherry, and delicate raspberry aromas, with a subtle hint of anise. On the palate, flavors of succulent black cherry are complemented by notes of cedar box and toasted vanilla beach, rounded out with a lingering finish of rich cocoa powder. This wine shows great acidity, lush tannins, and impressive age-worthiness.

James Suckling

A cab with lots of currant and blackberry aromas with some fresh herbs such as sage and lead pencil character. Lots of crushed stone and cement as well. Medium to full body. Firm and polished, Extremely long and vivid. A blend of Hudson, Morisoli, and George III. Shows the magic of 2021. Needs two or three years to soften and come together.

Leading off the Cabernet Sauvignons, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve should be snatched up by savvy readers. A blend of 90% and the rest tiny amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot aged 18 months in 100% new oak, its deep purple hue is followed by a rocking bouquet of blue fruits, camphor, tobacco, and leather, with just a kiss of background oak. Coming from a mix of notable sites, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, classic 2021 will evolve for at least 15 years if well stored. It’s with the best at the price.
