Growing Conditions

For Amici the 2017 wine grape harvest will truly be remembered as a harvest of teamwork and dedication showed on all levels from our team, colleagues, friends and the first responders that saved our homes and livelihood. The quality of the 2017 vintage is ever present and is producing wines of vibrancy, tenacity and character, much like the traits needed by all who helped the wine industry through such a challenging end to the season.


2017 gave us the opportunity to craft this quintessential Cabernet Franc from a few Napa Valley vineyards, creating a complex wine reminiscent of right-bank Bordeaux. Aromas of black olive, tapenade, oak spice and blackberry on the nose carry into a savory palate with cocoa, black cherry and hints of minerality. The long finish highlights the wine’s powered tannins with the promise of aging beautifully for the next several years.
