2013 Amici Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
About the Wine: This 2013 Amici Cellars Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of 50% Sauvignon Musque and 50% Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in St. Helena and Rutherford in Napa Valley. The wine exhibits distinct aromas of citrus, fragrant honeysuckle, and notes of pineapple and guava. On the palate, round flavors of tropical fruit and lemon custard are balanced by a clean, wet stone minerality and a hint of lemon zest. It is a complex and elegant wine that pairs exceptionally well with food.
2013 Vintage: 2013 is widely regarded as one of the best vintages on record for Napa Valley winemaking. The ideal year began with a mild spring and no frosts,
and continued with a summer and fall that brought warm, even temperatures and no heat waves. Throughout the growing season the vines enjoyed warm days and cool nights, allowing a long, slow ripening that resulted in beautifully balanced
wines with fully developed flavors and fresh acidity.Alcohol: 14.2%
