Top 10 wines in the US press27th June, 2013 by Andy Young
Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon NapaValley 2010
This is the wine recommended by Sandra Silfven in the Detroit News, she wrote: “This is a soft beauty that charms the nose and palate with its dark cherry, plum, blackberry personality infused with brown cooking spices — cinnamon and clove — from the French oak barrels.
“Almost half the barrels are new – which might be overpowering for some wines but not this fruit.”
Silfven added: “It’s made off famous Napa real estate — Bosche Vineyard in Rutherford, mountain fruit from Potelle Vineyard and Veeder Peak, Stage Coach and Round Pond vineyards. No wonder this baby is so rich, smooth, powerful and approachable.”
