Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon
Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley blended of 78.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 5.6% Malbec and 2.2% Cabernet Franc has a compelling perfume of dried roses, fragrant herbs and dusty earth over a core of crushed plums and blackberries with a waft of tobacco. Medium-bodied, lively and expressive in the mouth, it has a pleasant pluminess accented by herb and earth notions, finishing long and chewy.
TASTING NOTESWith spicy sweet oak complexity, the wine exudes dark fruit such as blackberry, blackcurrant, blueberry and dark cherry. The body is very full with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry/berry flavours that develop from start to finish. With great texture and mouthfeel, this Cabernet is full-bodied, rich and opulent.
FOOD PAIRINGWith lots of depth and great acid balance, this wine is juicy and rich; a great example of a refined mountain Cabernet that begs to be paired with a perfectly marbled, grilled ribeye steak!
