Freemark Abbey

There is no school like the “Old School”. Check out these two offerings from one of Napa's most venerated wineries.

2015 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon...$43.99
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.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate
Rated 95/100 Decanter Magazine

2016 Freemark Abbey Chardonnay...$23.99
The 2016 Chardonnay is scented of baked pears, ripe apples and dried herbs with touches of cedar, cinnamon toast and yeast extract. Full-bodied, rich and with a pleasantly oily texture, it is jam packed with ripe apple and toasty layers, finishing long.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
