The 2020 vintage will always be an unforgettable year, one we’ll remember for the resilience, optimism and unfailing teamwork shown by our growers and winemakers. 2020 began with a warm, dry winter, a mild spring and a warm summer, and those beautiful conditions shine through in our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc. The clusters were able to ripen fully in the late-summer sun, with cool evenings preserving acidity until the fruit was picked in late August, prior to the wildfires that prevented us from making any red wines in 2020. The scarcity of this vintage makes it even more special, and we’re thrilled with the quality of the fruit and resulting wine in the 2020 Napa County Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromatics start off with notes of jasmine, white peach, and wet stone. As it opens and warms, the aromas are met with ripe Meyer lemon, key lime, and sweet meringue. The full-bodied palate has the sensation of dense white pineapple juice, fresh citrus, and firm guava. The 2020 Amici Sauvignon Blanc has wonderful acidity and ends with a long mouthwatering finish of lemon zest and lime custard.
