Freemark Abbey Sycamore Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

$79.99

New Reserve Cabernet release from Freemark Abbey. Limited. 94 Points Robert Parker:  "The brilliant 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Sycamore Vineyard (another Rutherford site on Bella Oaks Lane) is a blend of 85.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged 28 months in barrel. It boasts an opaque purple color, terrific notes of licorice, creme de cassis, charcoal, forest floor, baking spices and earth, as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel with great fruit intensity and purity. This savory, mouthfilling beauty is best drunk over the next 20-25 years. Now owned by Kendall-Jackson, but with long-time winemaker Ted Edwards still firmly in control, Freemark Abbey has produced a large assortment of wines ranging from very good to exceptional."

Tobacco, vanilla, cinnamon and spice. 2010 is much more balanced than the 2011.

Single vineyard cab. The Sycamore is subtle but nuanced and balanced. Not as fragrant as the Bosche and not as fruit forward but good currant and cherry mix with a decent tannin touch at the end.
