2016 Amici Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1403492 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Youthful, this wine is blended with small amounts of Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Together, they form a core of earthy cedar, clove and pencil shavings, with a bite of thick tannin taking on a leathery texture. Dark cherry, black currant and dark chocolate melt on the palate into a velvety whole. *Editors’ Choice* (VB)  (7/2019)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Leading off the Cabernet releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a broad, sexy, seamless effort that has lots of classic dark fruits and floral notes, medium to full body, light tannins, and rock star purity of fruit. As Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon goes, this is first class value that delivers true Cabernet flare. Drink it over the coming 8-10 years.  (1/2019)

93 points James Suckling

 There’s a depth and power to this Napa cabernet with blueberry, blackberry and currant character. Full body, racy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year or two to soften.  (10/2018)

This is a quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - exactly what you expect it to be...BIG, BOLD, and VELVETY. The Amici Cab is smooth, luscious and slides right off your palate in a very easy to drink pairing with food or own its own. Ready to drink now, this bottle is a dinner table pleaser as juicy red fruits of berries, herbs and chocolate hits your palate. Perfect balance of oak and smoke makes this wine very well-balanced. I could see this vintage aging quite well too for at least another 5-10 years. Easily buy a case for your cellar or gifting for any occasion. Pairings include: red meats, seafood, heavy cheeses. Sip and enjoy!

Full throttle with plenty of cocoa, coffee, creme de cassis and vanilla. A wine that keeps its balance and elegance and shows quite nicely right now.

The new 2016 release of Napa Cab from Amici Cellars is their best yet. Coming from what I believe to be the best vintage in many years (even better than 2013 in my book) and from increasingly high-end vineyard sources, this bottle drinks well above its price point, especially at our sharp promotional retail of $39.95! It picked up triple 93 point scores from top critics, to boot. The wine is bursting with big, ripe layers of purple fruit like plum, huckleberry, cassis, and blackcurrant that are lifted by hints of bay laurel and spicy oak. It's very juicy and energetic on the palate, and the lush fruit is nicely complemented by fresh acidity and fine but present tannins. Drinking nicely now, this will continue to open up over the next 1-3 years and should drink nicely for at least 7-10. The guys at Amici continue to produce some of the finest wines in the valley and this bottling is a screaming value.
Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2029
