2007 a vintage that infuses all Napa Cabernets with more than the typical fruit charm, a more careless, 'What the hell, let's drink it now!â?� approach. When 2007 meets a classic like Freemark Abbey, all are sure
to be pleased ' especially at this modest price. This 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. 4% Petit Verdot, 1%
Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec shows 'Napa Cab Classicismâ?� with scents of cedar and sweet black olives, plus generosity with the sense of fresh blackberries. The mouth is solid and balanced, with a great mineral feel that gratifies without wearying the palate. Here is Cabernet with a medium body, the ability to age and develop like a good Rioja or
Bordeaux, and the charm of a fruit-forward vintage.
