The first vintage from this beautiful Stag’s Leap District vineyard site, the 2017 Hirondelle Cabernet Sauvignon shows the region’s classic iron-rich aromas and freshness on the palate
Concentrated but with linear precision and acidity, the wine is powerful yet silky. Hedonistic flavors of blueberry pie, dark chocolate and licorice lead into hints of crushed rock and black tea. With powdery tannins and a lovely finish, the wine shows great promise as one of our most food- friendly wines.
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.
