    "Full-bodied, concentrated and giving mouth-filling black fruits and savory layers" ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    There's not much more we need to say after reading the frothing praise of Mr. Parker, but we do have some pairing suggestions for the Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Grab everybody's attention right out of the gate with white pizza laden with pancetta, blue cheese and grilled onions to go with your first glasses. The hearty, ripe fruit is perfect opposite the tang of the blue cheese, and who doesn't love pizza with a good Napa Cab? If it's a casual get together, continue the carbs and serve panninis hot off the press with chorizo, melty Manchego cheese and arugala. Your diners will thank you. Short ribs braised with mushrooms and spring vegetables are a terrific option if you've got some time on your hands. Or, you could live out the old adage of a slab and a Cab, and grill up some ribeyes, drizzle them with a Cabernet reduction, and offer an orange-mint gremolata on the side to really pop your plates and give the fantastic depth and complexity of this Freemark Abbey something to hold onto. Buon appetito winelovers!

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "A blend of 75.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.9% Merlot, 7.3% Petit Verdot, 6.1% Cabernet Franc and 1.6% Malbec, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is deep garnet-purple colored and reveals open-knit, expressive cassis and baked plums scents with hints of pencil shavings, menthol, dark chocolate and damp soil plus a waft of unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, concentrated and giving mouth-filling black fruits and savory layers, it finishes with a provocative grainy texture. Drink date: 2020 - 2035." Oct 2018

    Winery:  "Opaque, dark ruby color introduces this wine that expresses dark fruit aroma and flavors. With spicy sweet oak complexity, the wine exudes dark fruit such as blackberry, black currant, blueberry and dark cherry. There are nuances of dark chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, cola, aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, graham crackers and a hint of tobacco. The body is very full with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry/berry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture and mouth feel, this Cabernet is full-bodied, rich and opulent. In one word… delicious."
