  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    Rich, intense and well-proportioned, with spicy currant, cedary oak, dried berry and black cherry flavors that are elegant and stylish, focused and persistent.

    The most well-balanced of this trio is the 2005 Affinity. Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by sweet cassis, toasty oak, graphite, and spice notes offered in a medium-bodied, elegant, Margaux-like stylish, graceful wine. Drink it over the next decade.

    Robert Craig Aroma: Dark berries and black cherry predominate, underlain with pure Napa Valley cassis and lovely notes of lavender, violets, anise and sweet spices. Flavors: A balanced entry of dark fruit and fine-grained tannin carries into the mid-palate, enlivened by more black currant liquer, violets and sweet spice box. Finish: Concentrated fruit flavors are bolstered by juicy tannins to create a complex, long-lived finish. General: A rich, multi-layered Cabernet that balances power with finesse. Wine Spectator Rich, intense and well-proportioned, with spicy currant, cedary oak, dried berry and black cherry flavors that are elegant and stylish, focused and persistent. Best from 2009 through 2014. Score: 89. -James Laube, July 31, 2008.

    This is such a great wine for the value and every Robert Craig I've had always delivers. Notes of herbal freshness, chocolate and silky dark berry flavors. Complex finish but very satisfying. Had this before a 2004 Miriam to compare and the Robert Craig blew it away! Need to buy more!

A pioneer in the development of mountain sources, Robert was involved with The Hess Collection in the 1980s before embarking on his own winemaking project in 1990. The program includes Affinity, a classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and powerhouse Cabernets from Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain appellations. These award-winning, structured and stylish Cabernets convey a unique personality derived from the soils, climate and varietal characteristics of each growing region. Robert Craig has been a pioneer in Napa Valley mountain vineyards since the 1980s.
