About Freemark Abbey 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Back in 1976 Freemark Abbey Cabernet was one of the winning wines in the famous Judgment in Paris Tasting. It's been a Napa Valley staple for decades and today Freemark Abbey is owned by the Jess Jackson family and has a renewed focus and vitality. Robert Parker just wrote "Freemark Abbey has hit pay dirt big-time, with plenty of terrific offerings that are being released now and early in 2016. Winemaker Ted Edwards seems to go from strength to strength and readers looking for top-flight Napa wines priced under $50.00 need to check out several of these immediately, as I'm sure they'll be huge crowd-pleasers." This 2016 is 75.8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16.2% Merlot, 4.0% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The grapes were sourced from the Oakville Reach Vineyard, Keyes Vineyard on Howell Mountain, Stagecoach Vineyard and their estate Bosché and Sycamore Vineyards in Rutherford. The wine was aged in 35% new oak, a mix of French and American, for 27 months.

The 2015 scored 94 from the WIne Advocate. No scores yet for this stunning 2016 but we expect them to be stellar. This wine shows dark ruby color and flavors of 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.
