The 2016 Amici 'Reserve' Cabernet is big, bold and utterly delicious. Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, this begins with profound characteristics of ripe blackberries and black cherries, which come together with pencil lead, espresso, fresh-tilled loam, chocolate, sweet spices and roasted savory herbs all bursting from the glass. On the palate this does not hold back, offering a rich, full-bodied texture, with wonderful opulence and deep layers of ripe dark fruits that expand seamlessly through the wine. Displaying incredible depth and concentration, this majestic Cabernet continues to impress as it comes to an end with a long, mouth coating finish that goes on and on. While the Reserve is already extremely expressive, it also has the potential to offer a drinking window that spans over a decade long. Readers looking for a straightforward, absolutely delicious wine from this vintage will instantly fall in love with this exceptional wine from Amici Cellars.
