Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Bosché Vineyard 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage and Winemaker’s Notes: The color of this wine is very dark ruby. The aroma has layers of depth, hinting of dark cherry, black currant, blackberry and cassis. These forward fruit components in the aroma are further complexed with a hint of juniper berry and mincemeat pie. The bouquet is reminiscent of dark chocolate, cedar, cinnamon, and clove. With flavor that is a quite pleasant dark cherry dominance, the finish is very long and complimented by mature, smooth tannins. Statistics: # Varietal Composition: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot # Vineyards: 100% Bosché Vineyard (Rutherford, Napa Valley, California) # Fermentation: Open and closed-top stainless steel fermenters # Aging: 24 months in 60-gallon French oak barrels # Alcohol: 14.1% # pH: 3.70 # Acid: 0.65 g/100 mL

Freemark Abbey Winery:
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.

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.
