Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2015
91  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 91 "A pretty ribbon of gardenia opens the nose of this rich, concentrated wine, creamy in texture with a viscosity of vanilla and oak. The richness continues in deep caramel notes, as baked pear provides fruit and nuance. "  The Wine Advocate "The 2015 Chardonnay is partially

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
92  Wine Advocate 
The Wine Advocate 92 "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Freemark Abbey’s generic bottling from Napa, is a brilliant example, and at $50, a heck of a value. It is also one of their larger cuvées at 24,332 cases. A blend of 75.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10.9% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc

The Wine Advocate 91  "The 2014 Chardonnay is a non-malolactic 100% Chardonnay that’s 45% barrel-fermented. The wine is sensational. There are nearly 10,000 cases of this wine, which shows loads of white peach, honeysuckle, green apple and melon notes in a distinctive, clean, steely Chablis-like

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
93  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 93 “A stunning Cabernet Sauvignon and a classic example of Napa viticulture,this blend of 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, was aged just over two years in oak. Loads of sweet blackcurrant fruit, cocoa, a touch of toast, earth, and

88  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 88 "I tasted two Merlots from Freemark Abbey. The 2013 Merlot Napa, which comes from multiple sources, is their biggest cuvée (89.1% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec aged almost 16 months in oak). A deep ruby color, with notes of mocha,

Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2013
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "Longtime winemaker Ted Edwards has fashioned a beautiful 2013 Chardonnay, an 11,000-case, non-malolactic, 70% barrel-fermented cuvee from multiple sources throughout Napa. One-third new French oak was used. Notes of delicate pear, apple blossom and tropical fruits emerge from this

Freemark Abbey Merlot 2012
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "A cross-Napa Valley blend, the 2012 Merlot is their largest cuvée (15,500 cases), and is composed of 85.2% Merlot blended with other Bordeaux varietals. Only 21% new oak is used, so the fruit component dominates. A dense plum/purple color is followed by notes of chocolate,

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
90  Anthony Dias Blue 
Anthony Dias Blue 90 “Smooth and spicy with plum, cassis and racy acidity; toasty, nicely structured and long.” - Anthony Dias Blue  "The 2011 cabernet has an opaque, youthful dark ruby color. The aromas of dark cherry, ripe Santa Rosa plum and black currant are integrated with the spicy

92  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 92 "This is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. It epitomizes the Napa quality of power married to finesse. Winemaker Ted Edwards deserves kudos for producing a high-production Cabernet (34,000 cases) this good, from a difficult vintage. It’s dry and balanced, with rich, complex

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "A powerful, direct wine, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon hits the palate with a blast of dark cherries, plums, violets and spice box. The tannins remain quite firm, so another few years of cellaring is probably a good idea. I very much like the sense of energy and direction,

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Wine and Spirits 91 "Best Buy" Bright, spicy and sophisticated, this takes a cool, red-fruited approach to the 2008 vintage. Theres shape to the wine, the tannins made supple by their time in oak, the wood lending a hint of butterscotch sweetness. The tannins become earthier with air, the wine

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
93  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 93 "Shows all the hallmarks of an important young Napa Cabernet. Bone dry and quite hard in tannins, its immensely concentrated in blackberries, black currants, cassis and fine, smoky new oak. Possesses that elusive quality of dramatic terroir, a real sense of place. Very fine

Freemark Abbey Chardonnay 2010
 "Youthful greenish straw in color, our Chardonnay has refreshing fruit aromas. Lemon and lemon-lime with green apple seems to compose much of the bright fruit, but there is a subtle complexity that conjures up memories of lemon cake, lemon meringue and key lime pie. The oak is well integrated,
