Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) From a wonderfully abundant vintage with exceptional quality, this Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of all five Bordeaux varietals carefully selected from 20+ vineyards across the Napa Valley. With great complexity, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of fresh boysenberry, blackberry pie, Bing cherry, and cocoa-dusted chocolate berry truffle, all integrated with the spicy sweetness of oak, cedar, cinnamon, clove and a hint of black pepper. With dark cherry and berry flavors from start to finish, this Cabernet is full-bodied, rich and opulent.

    9% Petit Verdot; 6% Merlot; 2% Cabernet Franc. A quick whiff of mint, a focused suggestion of black cherries, a hint of cocoa and a rounded, fruity impression of more Merlot than shows in the wine's cepage all lift this wine into the full commendation. Its supple palatefeel and polished tannins allow it to drink nicely now, and its firm underbelly will allow it to age for a few years into a smoother potion yet.
