$24.99

92 points - Best Buy                                                 The 2017 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon, made by Amici Cellars, is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes hand selected off premier vineyards in Alexander Valley, Dry Creek and Rockpile in Sonoma County. 92 Points James Suckling: "Lots of black currant and blackberry aromas with hints of wet earth and spice cake. Medium body with a solid center palate of ripe fruit and fine tannins. Soft and silky. Delicious finish." 90 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County is outstanding and reveals a ruby/purple color, attractive notes of black cherry and blackberry fruits, plenty of tobacco leaf and graphite, medium body, and nicely integrated acidity. It’s a classic Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon that tastes like it cost 3-4 times the price. It will keep for a decade." 90 Points Robert Parker: "Blended of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot and 1% Petite Sirah aged 14 months in 50% new French oak, the Cabernet Sauvignon Olema is deep garnet-purple colored and features textbook cassis, warm plums ad blackberries notions with hints of cedar, sandalwood and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it bursts in the mouth with juicy, crunchy fruit, framed by soft tannins and a lively line, finishing on a refreshing minty note."

This wine has the taste as if feet were used to stomp the grapes. No recommendation here.

Good cab. Nice black fruits up front leading to some acidity in the middle with decent tannins at the end. Feels medium body. Needs to breath.

2017 - the wine isn’t totally bold and lacked depth for me, but overall it’s fruitiness is delicious. The nose is fruit forward and bold, I wish the taste matched.

Bright cherry, tart, expected deeper blue and purple fruits. Some fertile black soil terroir notes, as well as black pepper. Tannins are pretty tight still. Easy drinking, but nothing too stellar.

Spices, jam, boysenberry, deep, low alcohol, light oak / vanilla, strong fruit, candy, decent length, minerals, long finish. Exhibits attributes of good wine, taste is not there initially. Decant for an hour and flavor improves immensely. ($28)

Ripe fruits, hint if clay? Something hits the taste buds but quickly goes away, not a big fan
