Predominantly Merlot, with some Cabernet Franc, Malbec and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine invites you in with its aromas of dark cherry, new leather, milk chocolate, Red Vine licorice (who doesn’t like candy?) and Herbs de Provence. Well-integrated oak and tannins set up a lovely frame for dark plum and blackberry brambly flavors. And as if this wine knows you don’t want it to end, the finish is deliciously long.
About Freemark Abbey
Freemark Abbey is one of Napa Valley’s original Cabernet houses. With a legacy that dates to 1886, it was established as the region’s 16th bonded winery by Josephine Tychson, the first female vintner in California. Today, the winery is celebrated for crafting classically structured Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay from pedigreed sites in the Rutherford AVA—particularly its iconic Bosché and Sycamore vineyards. With the foresight to cellar wines for aging, the winery has one of the region’s most extensive wine libraries, underscoring the quality and longevity of its admired Cabernet.
