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.

  • Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


    The wine is a deep ruby along the edges leading to an inky purple at the center, just what you like to see in a quality Cabernet. The nose is a lovely bouquet of ripe dark fruit, blackberries, plum and cassis that just exude quality. The taste is much more refined than the typical big Napa Cab, it reminds me more of the great blends of Bordeau... Read More

  • Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Bosché Vineyard 1980


    I was gifted this wine by my brother-in-law who found it at an estate sale. So, provenance is questionable. This wine is clearly well on the downward slope. Initial impression is that it is pretty flaccid and a bit tart. Subsequent tastes, though, seem to say to me that there is nothing really all that bad about it. The tartness does seem to...

  • Not sure it was the greatest I've ever had, OT, but it is a terrific wine.  On the other hand, it is so different from the typical SB--fairly hefty, lot's of upfront fruit, and much more complex--I can see where many SB fans might not care for it.  As I mentioned above, it would be a killer pairing with lighter proteins served with some sort of ...

  • Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2012


    Nose broadcasts oaky, vanilla, melon hints. On the tongue, most of that is confirmed. Strong fruitinessagain, melon with some tropical fruits and, maybe some stone fruitsgive the wine an almost sweet characteristic. There is some acid detected on the back of the throat which saves this wine. Read More

  • Freemark Abbey Sycamore Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2011


    Complex and engagingly Old World, scents of black currant, black cherry, trail dust, mushroom, drying herbs, earth, vanilla and spice waft generously from the glass. The wine is surprisingly full-bodied given the savory nose but acidity and tannins of fine powder and chalk keep things well in balance. The flavors are rich and more typical of the... Read More

  • Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Bosche Vineyard 2011


    The unusually cool, wet vintage gave Napas 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 tanni... Read More

    Wine review by Fred Swan

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More
