Winemaker Notes: Dark ruby in color, the flavors such as blackberry, boysenberry and Bing cherry dominate with nuances of milk chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, aromatic cedar and Herbs de Provence. The sweet oak spice is very well integrated, adding to the overall complexity. The body is very full, with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture, integrated tannins, and pleasant mouth feel, this cabernet is full bodied, rich and opulent. In one word…. delicious.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine Enthusiast - "This impressive wine possesses just over 16% Merlot and touches of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Using a small percentage of new French oak, it offers dusty texture and well-defined flavors of dark cherry, plum, rock and earth. A sweetness of oak doesn’t get lost in the overall structure and cohesion."


James Suckling - "Aromas of blueberries, currants and flowers follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Shows some hazelnut and walnut undertones. Very fine-toned. Drink or hold."

Robert Parker - 92pts
Robert Parker - "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley reveals fresh blackberries, blackcurrants and black plums with hints of dark chocolate, menthol and fertile soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers delicious, crunchy black fruits and harmonious structure, finishing softly textured and spicy."


Wilfred Wong - "The 2016 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon harkens back to a time when Napa Reds showed balance and style. Though richer than earlier vintages, this wine stays on solid footing as an excellent example of what this valley can produce. This wine is bright and active with aromas and flavors of red and black fruits. Its slightly elevated palate makes it an excellent complementary choice with grilled lamb chops. "
