At Amici we believe that great wine is a pure, unadulterated expression of its vineyard origin. This lot, a rare expression of Napa Valley winemaking, is a single barrel of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Missouri Hopper Vineyard on the Oakville Bench. The famed Missouri Hopper Vineyard is deeply rooted in Napa Valley history, tracing its roots to its original planting in 1873. Showcasing the characteristic Oakville profile of power with refinement and freshness, this full-bodied wine displays rich and complex flavors of blueberry, black currant and dark cherry fruit, with a splash of cassis and mocha.
