Top 7 Cabernets Tasted 10/13

1. Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (2010)

Next » 1 of 7
Average price: $12.50 from 138 stores
Fruity and creamy on the nose with subtle underlay of dried herbal notes joining well balanced oak in supporting the core of ripe black currant and black cherry fruit. Nice clarity on entry, this offers a great combination of ripeness and power along with transparency and structure. There are plenty of tannins, with a slight drying edge, and acidity that is present if a bit soft but the flavors are rather pure and fresh, all currant and blackberry toned and playing off the fine use of oak. Finishing fruity and bright as well, with acids that emerge from the blanket of fruit and zesty tannins that cleanse the palate this is awfully well done. It’s also delicious! 92pts

  • 1347763Keith Rector The only thing I agree with in the article is that you don't have to buy $30 or much less $40 Cabernets to get great wines. That price range only fits a very small group of wine buyers. Search out the $20 - $25 Napa Cabs that are not only great, but scores of 90+ pts. *Conn Creek Napa Cab. $17.99 *Franciscan Napa Cab. $17.99 *Simi Alex. V. Cab. $17.99 These are just a few of the outstanding wine specials I am buying now at my favorite Wine Store. Search & you will find.
