Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
from Napa Valley, California
78.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.8% Syrah, 12.1% Merlot, 4.7% Petit Verdot, 2.2% Cabernet Franc
Deep ruby hue with appealing aromas of dark cherry, plum, juniper
berry, mushroom and sage. The bouquet from aging in oak barrel adds a complexity and spiciness of aromatic
cedar, cinnamon, clove, vanilla and cracked walnut. Abundant fruit-forward flavors, reminiscent of dried
cherry compote, are coupled with balanced tannins, leaving a pleasantly long finish.
The wine, while nicely
balanced for drinking in the near term, has a good acid structure that will support aging in the cellar.
