K&L Notes

An aptly named wine, as this wine has made "friends" with the staff here at K&L! Feels like a no-expense-spared Napa Cab, for a reasonable price.

    My favorite Cabernet Sauvignon’s in the store, for both taste and value. This wine comes from our friends at Amici, a winery based in the Napa Valley. It’s primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (89%), with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot blended in. The wine exudes aromas of deep plum, black currant, blueberry, and blackberry. Bouquet of espresso, dark chocolate, and lavender. On the palate, dark fruit flavors of cassis and blackberry come forward once more, with additional flavors of mocha and vanilla. A noted savory quality to this wine as well. Great balance of richness to acidity; tannin structure is silky in texture. Drinking really well now, but will as with others, 2013 is widely regarded as one of the best vintages on record for Napa Valley winemaking. Can easily cellar for another 10 years. One of our best Cabernet Sauvignons in store for under $75

    This is among the last Napa Cab blends we have from the great 2013 vintage and perhaps the best deal for a sub-$50 Napa we have in stock. This is exactly the type of wine that makes people want to drink Napa Cab. Rich and full bodied the wine opens with plum, cassis, and red berry notes. Interplaying with the ripe fruit are notes of sandalwood, coffee and chocolate, adding savory depth to the wine. Well balanced with a firm structure and integrated tannins, this is a beautiful bottle for cool evenings and serious nights.

    This is real deal Cabernet. What I love about this wine is that you absolutely get that beautiful Napa Valley Cabernet fruit but there is so much more going on with with. There is a judicious amount of oak, it rounds out and adds subtle chocolate and spice notes. There is also a savory almost olive like note to it that plays incredibly off the fruit. Full and rich this is a very satisfying Cabernet.

    Amici Napa Cabernet has been a favorite for quite some time now. The 2013 vintage was superb for cabs in the area and it really shows in the bottling. Blackberry, blueberry, cassis, a touch of vanilla and oak spice. Drinking well now and will reward another 10 years in the cellar.
