Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Sycamore Vineyar 2005
Intense black currant with a spicy blueberry compote, cinnamon, aromatic cedar, black pepper and clove. Dark chocolate permeates the aroma with a hint of Moroccan olives. Good depth of flavor with dark cherry, chocolate and integrated oak spice. Full-flavored with a very long, clean and fruitful finish with modest tannins.
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.
Nose of intense black currant, blueberry compote, cedar, clove and cinnamon. Just a hint of olive. On the palate, dark cherry, chocolate, some spice and a dash of mint. Rich and elegant with a long finish. - Tasted at winery 4/18/10

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Sycamore Vineyards (87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) is made in an earthier leaner more herbal style.
