Robert Craig Cellars Affinity 2000
Bordeaux Red Blends from Napa Valley, California
Our Bordeaux-style Cabernet blend is renowned for its elegant structure, dark berry flavors, and smooth tannins. The 2000 Affinity blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc is created from premier Napa Valley floor vineyards, including our Coombsville estate, Rutherford, Oakville and Carneros districts.
Aroma: Enticing bouquet of sweet black cherry and ripe boysenberry surrounded by subtle hints of mocha, violet and spice. Flavors: Intense and complex flavors spotlight black cherry and boysenberry interwoven with mineral notes, fresh herbs and tea. Finish: Flavors continue to unfold with dark fruit, mocha, earth, and sweet oak predominating. Full-bodied yet elegant, offering mouth-filling fruit, round tannins and excellent structure for aging.
