Robert Craig Winery Affinity Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$54.99

Robert Craig has consistently ranked among the foremost Napa Valley Cabernet producers since its founding in 1992.  The Affinity is a Cab-based bordeaux blend. Highly Recommended.92 Points Robert Parker: "Robert Craig is still one of the most consistent wineries in terms of quality and keeping pricing within realistic levels, not something frequently seen in Napa Valley. The least expensive wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity, the estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the foothills just south of Stag’s Leap blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. An absolutely stunning value in Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, the wine has an inky/purple color, a big sweet kiss of créme de cassis, spice box, mocha and assorted black fruits. It is full-bodied and ripe with low acidity and sweet tannins. This wine is showy and up front, but has enough stuffing to last 7-10 years or more."

Highly extracted and lots of residue on glasses. Super flavorful and good finish if you managed to keep the dregs away. I'm guessing unfined and unfiltered.

Earthy and aromatic with ripe fruit, vanilla, chocolate, and fresh brewed French press coffee. Very enjoyable wine drinking way above its cost.

Classic Napa style. It's like that big, plush leather lay-z-boy. You'd never pick it for your house, but once you're settled in, it sure is comfy.

Outstanding and will only get better with age. Dark fruit and subtle vanilla and spice flavors, full body, balanced acidity, and supple tannins that will keep this wine robust for some time. Will absolutely purchase again.
