Napa Valley, California
Wine Advocate 92 points!
A Napa Valley original, the origin of Freemark Abbey dates back to 1881, when Josephine and John Tychson purchased 147 acres in the Napa Valley. Eight decades later, Freemark Abbey helped launch the modern era of California wine. Ted Edwards has been Freemark Abbey's winemaker since 1985. Edwards' intelligent approach to winemaking, combined with the sheer length of his experience in the Napa Valley-the Rutherford Bench in particular-make him one of the region's leading vintners.
"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley reveals fresh blackberries, blackcurrants and black plums with hints of dark chocolate, menthol and fertile soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers delicious, crunchy black fruits and harmonious structure, finishing softly textured and spicy. 36,588 cases were made. Drink 2019-2032."-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 92 points!
