Some of the notable reviews Amici wines received during the month of November:
2009 Amici Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley – Wine Spectator: “Firm, concentrated and well-built, with a tight band of cedar, dried berry, black licorice and crushed rock. Ends with good length and depth. Drink now through 2022.” – J.L.
2009 Amici Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – Wine Spectator: “Aromas of ripe berry and crushed rock are both supple and firm, turning graceful and refined on the finish while maintaining focus. Drink now through 2020.” – J.L.
2009 Amici Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon – 92 Points, WineReviewsOnline.com, “Amici is the new venture of Joel Aiken, the respected and well-liked winemaker who spent the most recent decades of his career at Beaulieu Vineyards as the keeper of the flame of the Georges de Latour Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. This Amici Cab – one of several that has just been released – is a lean, spicy, minerally mountain Cab with very good concentration of fresh, ripe (but not overripe), dark berry fruit with accents of fresh herbs and lovely definition.”
