Drank 7/12/18. Tasing event.

Tar and black fruit on the nose. Flavors of big jammy red fruit with some blueberry mixed in. Some tannins on the fruit driven finish

3/24/6/3/3 +50 = 89 pts.

Needs a nice steak to mix with the jamminess

Classic Napa Cab. And the fruit sourced to make this is unreal. Not cheap but still a value.

Drinking quite nicely tonight. Brooding dark berries, baking spices, leather, and mild mint.

An evening spent with John Harris of Amici Cellars. Passed Hors d'ouevres, a 4-course dinner, and some delicious wines.

Third Course (Two wines devoted to this course): Short rib, corned brisket, various allium & ash, tobacco and turnip. Paired with the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and also the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Missouri Hopper vineyard.

Smooth with berry flavors, high alcohol content (15.1%). Very good!

Amici Reservations 2014. Dark cherry, plum and tobacco aroma. Obviously French oak. Tannins are evident but integrated well. As the wine opened up, the tannins slid away. Classic example of an outstanding Napa Cabernet. this has Napa written all over it! Wow! The Amici team is working wonders.

This was a nice big juicy wine. Tannins were manageable. Not sure if age will add much beyond shedding some tannin. Enjoy!
