Editorial Reviews for Freemark Abbey Cabernet Napa
Fruity and creamy on the nose with subtle underlay of dried herbal notes joining well balanced oak in supporting the core of ripe black currant and black cherry fruit. Nice clarity on entry, this offers a great combination of ripeness and power along with transparency and structure. There are plenty of tannins, with a slight drying edge, and acidity that is present if a bit soft but the flavors are rather pure and fresh, all currant and blackberry toned and playing off the fine use of oak. Finishing fruity and bright as well, with acids that emerge from the blanket of fruit and zesty tannins that cleanse the palate this is awfully well done. It’s also delicious! 92pts
Dusty and a bit sweet on the nose but showing nicely layered green olive, licorice, cedar and black cherry fruit with a hint of dried herbs. A bit diffuse on the palate, but showing a nice balance of integrated acidity and soft tannins that supports the light and lean core of red cherry fruit. This is a touch on the simple side but is drinking well with an attractive mouthfeel. 88pts
Found on a top 7 cab list. sounds like it has great potential. Avg. price $34
The Freemark Abbey was fairly big and jammy with loads of fruit on the front end and a decent amount of oak. Tannins were a little raw yet, believe this bottle could use a few more years. Consumed this with friends and tasted along side a Simi '05 Reserve cab and an '08 St. Francis. The Simi was my favorite by far.
On the nose this shows a generous amount of woodsy spice. Bitter cocoa and hints of under ripe blackberries lead into a zingy palate of ripe raspberries and that generous amount of spice just keeps giving! Not as soft as some cabs, but a nice change!
Very nice dry red.
I love this wine. At about $35 in the Midwest, this is a great deal, especially when measured against other Napa Valley wines. Not bad for a 125 year old winery.
External Reviews for Freemark Abbey Cabernet Napa
Freemark Abbey Cabernet is medium dark ruby, with aromas of sweet black cherry, blackberry and Santa Rosa plum. The oak is very well integrated with a light spice, clove, vanilla and toast. The depth in the nose has a complexity of dark chocolate and a hint of dried herbs. The entry is soft with dark fruit flavors and well resolved tannins. Velvety, floral, juicy and rich, this wine has great sex appeal.
This is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. It epitomizes the Napa quality of power married to finesse. Winemaker Ted Edwards deserves kudos for producing a high-production Cabernet (34,000 cases) this good, from a difficult vintage. It’s dry and balanced, with rich, complex blackberry, sage and sweet oak flavors. Drink now–2017.
The backward, Bordeaux-inspired 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder reveals sweet black currant, oak, forest floor and underbrush characteristics. Full-bodied with terrific ripeness and richness as well as a long finish with moderately high tannins, it should be forgotten for 3–4 years and drunk over the following two decades.
Good medium ruby-red, more saturated than the merlot. Attractive floral perfume lifts aromas of redcurrant, tobacco and licorice. Offers darker berries on the palate, along with dark chocolate, pepper and spices and a slightly green herb-and-menthol element. Nice touch of sweetness. Finishes with firm tannic spine and good length.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa shows beautiful cedary, Christmas fruitcake, black currant and black cherry notes as well as excellent ripeness, medium body and a long, spicy, heady finish. Composed of 82.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot and small dollops of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, it should drink well for 10+ years.
Free Shipping Case! Freemark Abbey's entry-level Cabernet has been a hit with us for the last few vintages, plenty of fruit with notes of cocoa, allspice, and cigar with a generous mouth-feel, silky tannins, and a lingering finish.
The sweet fruitiness and citrus-driven acidity of raspberry and cherry jam mark this savory, young wine. Its pedigree is impressive, ranging from the winery’s historic Bosché Vineyard to Atlas Peak and Mount Veeder. It’s insanely rich, if a little obvious in its appeal, so drink over the next few years.
Includes 13.0% Merlot, 3.4% Petit Verdot, 1.1% Malbec and 0.2% Cabernet Franc. The 2010 Cabernet has a rich dark ruby-garnet color. The aromas of dark cherry, red plum and blackberry are integrated with the spicy sweetness of oak, cedar, cinnamon, clove and toast. The body is very full with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry/berry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture and mouth feel, this Cabernet is full bodied, rich and opulent.
