1994 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Deep ruby, with an inviting nose of dark cherries, juniper, mint, cinnamon, clove, and earthy hints of dried rose petals. Packed with juicy berry flavors, mostly cherries and raspberry jam, this Sycamore shows appealing traces of both mint and dark chocolate. Good balance of fruit, acid, and toasty oak. Finishes long and smooth. A keeper!
