Freemark Abbey Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium dark ruby, this wine has 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. 80.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.8% Merlot, 1.2% Cabernet Franc, 3.6% Petit Verdot, 1.5% Malbec

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.

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!
