Since the Affinity debuted with the 1993 vintage, our Bordeaux-style
Cabernet has been a sought-after favorite on wine lists of the nation's top
restaurants and in fine wine shops. Finesse and grace are the hallmarks of this
classy blend, echoing a Margaux-like complexity, depth and harmony, in
which dark, luscious fruit is married with ripe, round tannins that provide
the structure for aging.
Aroma: Concentrated berry and black cherry fruit at the forefront, underlain
with sweet cassis and touches of violets, lavender and spicy oak. Flavors: A
beautifully polished core of black fruit on the mid-palate, interwoven with
black olive, red currant, espresso and a hint of maple. Finish: Lush and
generous, focusing on more dense fruit, enlivened with crisp acidity and
silky, fine-grained tannins. General: A rich, multi-layered Cabernet that
balances power with finesse.
