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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good bright red-ruby. Cherry, redcurrant and flowers on the nose. Supple on entry, then a bit youthfully clenched in the middle, showing good grip to the flavors of cassis, minerals, licorice and herbs. Not hugely rich or fleshy but has good structure. A tad dry and peppery on the finish. This wine was to have been bottled in April.

A powerful, direct wine, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon hits the palate with a blast of dark cherries, plums, violets and spice box. The tannins remain quite firm, so another few years of cellaring is probably a good idea. I very much like the sense of energy and direction, especially on the finish. The 2009 is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, from parcels in Stage Coach, Potelle, Veeder Peak, Bosche and Sycamore. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2024.
