Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Bosché Vineyard 1980
The unusually cool, wet vintage gave Napa’s winemakers a taste of life in Bordeaux. This wine does the same for tasters. The nose is immediately complex and captivating with dusty, tart black currant, huckleberry, coffee, dry earth, cocoa nib, dry leaves, dried rose petals and mint easily discernible. Freshness plus fine, powdery and chalky tannins frame a palate of medium-plus body. Flavors match the nose and the long finish is punctuated by juicy huckleberry. Layered and elegant, but there’s plenty of rich fruit. An easy choice for dinner or the cellar. 94ptsAdd winemaker's notes
It began over a century ago as a vision shared by a handful of pioneers; those with an intimate knowledge of grapes and a deep respect for the land. This vision took root, was nurtured by skilled hands and ultimately resulted in one of the first premium wineries in the Napa Valley. Today, the wine of Freemark Abbey stands as a testament to what the rich earth of the Napa Valley is capable of creating when working in perfect harmony with nature.

raspeberries and cherries on the nose...silky tannins lead to a full long finish.
What a great vintage and what a fine wine. Really enjoyed this wine. Dark dark color, sexy and sleek. The nose is full of dark fruits and currents. The finish is so smooth and sexy it just makes you crave for more. Had this with an awesome medium rare fillet and a side of grilled pinnaple for fun. The rich meat was such a good compliment to this. Added hints of smokiness to the wine and even helped the nose out a bit by adding notes of deeper dark berries and a bit of smoke. I wish I had more of this stuff!
I first had a bottle of the 1999 Freemark Abbey Bosche a few years ago at a restaurant. I enjoyed it so much, that I found a great deal on a bottle and had it shipped to me. I enjoyed the second bottle just as much. A big Cab with a beautiful ruby color and delicious nose. Just the way I like a cab to be, bold with red cherry notes, smooth while still big, and fruit forward without being overly fruity nor woody. Extremely enjoyable cab!

External Reviews for Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Bosché Vineyard
From a 23-acre vineyard planted on the so-called red Rutherford dust, this blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot reveals a sumptuous perfume of crème de cassis, loamy soil, and spicy oak, followed by medium to full-bodied flavors with sweet tannin, outstanding concentration and an overall equilibrium. The Freemark Abbey pedigree is unmistakable.
Known for age-ability and elegance, Freemark Abbey Bosche Cabernet is sourced from the name-sake vineyard in Rutherford. Bright cherry and blackberry fruit character with dusty tannins and perfect balance.
Wine & Spirits ReviewA lush and round Napa Valley cabernet, this is all about soft ripeness of black fruit and rich, espresso-roast tannin. A pretty floral note adds to the wine's simple, delicious flavor. A steakhouse pour.Wine Tasting NotesThe color of this wine is very dark ruby. Soft, dark fruit dominates the aroma, with tobacco and cedar, chocolate, ripe black cherry/berry, plum, and blueberry, followed by a background of violets. Soft, supple, and voluptuous flavors of blueberry pie, black cherry, and chocolate. Velvety tannins, and a big mouthfeel in this gentle giant.

Bright, saturated red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, licorice, cedar and mint. Generous and densely packed, with fleshy flavors of currant and dark chocolate complicated by tobacco leaf and mint; claret-like but with California sweetness. Finishes with subs... Stephen Tanzer.

The thirtieth vintage from the Bosché Vineyard is a deep ruby color, with delightful aromas of blackberry jam, black currant, clove, dark chocolate, and slight juniper berry. Full round flavors of rich chocolate, blackberry, and black raspberry, plus soft tannins lead to a long luscious finish.
Cedar flavors weigh heavily upon the ripe cherry and berry-laced fruit. Supple and elegant in texture, if you can look past the oaky flavors. Drink now. 3,988 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Bosche Vineyard 750ml
