FREEMARK ABBEY, RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2016
Located in Napa’s St. Helena district, Freemark Abbey is one of the Valley’s oldest wineries, as well as one of the original producers of single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Though today the idea of single vineyard wines is commonplace, Freemark Abbey was one of the first to showcase the true diversity of Napa terroir. We are thrilled to have sourced Freemark Abbey’s 2016 Bosché Vineyard and Sycamore Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons, two high-scoring Rutherford wines that display the trifecta of power, elegance, and ageability as only the best Napa Cabernet can. Don’t miss your opportunity to collect these classic wines from an outstanding vintage with $25 off each label!
In the 1950s, John Bosché planted a 12-acre vineyard around his home in Rutherford, located off a small unmarked road south of Grgich Hills Cellars. In 1968, Bosché asked Chuck Carpy, a co-founder of Freemark Abbey, to produce a small amount of wine from only Bosché grapes. As you may have predicted, the results were phenomenal, and over the years the grapes from Bosché have produced some of Freemark Abbey's best and most iconic Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 vintage offers “beautiful tannins and a seamless, elegant texture” with a profile that weaves between black cherry and raspberry, hints of dark chocolate, black pepper, forest floor, aromatic cedar, and oak spice.
Sycamore Vineyard is also located within Rutherford. The vineyard is about 24 acres and located only about a mile south of Bosché, right up against the Mayacamas Range. This label was first produced in 1980, and the 2016 vintage is up there with the best to date. The wine remains in incredible balance, with fine acidity providing a counter to the brooding structure and dark fruit and minerality. Expect nuances of dark chocolate truffle, black fruit, sweet cherry, crimini mushroom, forest floor, and leather that combine seamlessly.
