Hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and crushed berries on the nose. The palette is expansive with linze torte, licorice and a reasonable use of oak. Tannins are not resolved, which makes sense given the vintage. Finishes taught and long. A very good effort from a solid producer.

Holy crap, this shocked me. The 2012 Freemark Abbey is perhaps the best value Napa Cab in years. Gorgeous floral nose, followed by a smooth, velvety finish of dark berries and spice. This is what Napa Cabernet is all about. Score: 95 points (Just looked: Parker gave 93 points, and WE gave 90 and must've been drinking a different wine)

Balanced, simple, non lingering. An easy go to.

This is wonderfully lush and fruit forward. The tannins are there at the Finnish, but not witch hazely so delicious now or 10 years from now.

Clove / spices, cocoa, blackcurrants and blueberries. Full body with a decent amount of tannins

Subtle tannins, dark cherry on the palate, medium finish. Perfect amount of oak, not overpowering at all. Absolutely love it!
