Amici Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Powerful and complex, the 2019 Amici Napa Cabernet Sauvignon leads with dense aromas of sweet vanilla cedar, rose petal, fresh currant and plum. The full-bodied palate has notes of dark chocolate, hoisin soy and plush tannins. The floral and spiced nose accentuate the rich sweet palate and lead to a long, balanced finish of complex density and power.
Made with the goal of great Napa Cabernet at $50 bucks, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley succeeds admirably, offering gorgeous cassis, violet, and chocolaty aromatics as well as medium to full-bodied richness, a balanced, layered mouthfeel, and silky tannins. It competes with wines at three times the cost. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 75% new barrels.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is polished, nuanced and so delicious. Silky and floral, with vibrant red-toned fruit, the Napa Valley Cabernet delivers the goods. It is a positively stellar wine from Amici. I loved it.
