2016's are going to be some serious stuff - best base line Cab in many years, I can't wait.

Spice box. Great balance and mouthfeel. A nice Napa offering at an approachable price point.

Always good 👌🏻 Sweet, ripe red & black fruits, spices, and eucalyptus.

Big bold fruit, yet restrained, offering velvety tannins. Very approachable now.

dense and velvety. Warm black fruit steeped on licorice and mocha with well integrated structure. It shows some restraint and back bone, but I worry it will get porty with age.

One of the next Amici vintages yet! Depth and complexity, beautiful tannin integration, mineral... Anthony Biagi is doing wonders in his new role at Amici! Feels like there's a touch of Oakville fruit in this blend too..

First off, delectable has no rating frome anyone on this specific skew, and I forgot to take a picture. This was the Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, 100 case production. This was wine of the night. So much flavor, aroma, and most importantly balance. One of the best Oakville Cabs I've had in some time. I need more wine like this in my life!

A work in progress. Deep red with purple tones and aromas of juicy black fruits and herb spice. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot and aged for 20 months in French oak (75% new). On the palate blueberry and blackberry flavors with notes of cacao, espresso and oak. Well balanced with tight firm tannins that need to develop. Lingering finish ending with earthy tones. Should be great in 5 years, put a couple in your cellar.

On the nose, pretty bright fruits and a hint of licorice. Tasted medium on the palate and not very overwhelming...finished with almost a grape fruit roll-up taste. Though not outstanding, I enjoyed this much more than the '13.
