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.

Quite approachable with softer tannin and lots of cocoa

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!

My kind of Napa Cab. Everything in balance. Beautiful cassis fruit, little note of eucalyptus, graphite, earth. Beautiful fruit and acidity. Long pure finish. Can't wait until they bring the dry aged strip!

Delicious dark fruits, mocha, hints of anise, and oak follows a nose of violets and bramble scents. Fruit forward. Medium-large tannins. Superb sipping on its own, but easily paired with Alfredo. I'd expect complexity to improve with age. Delicious!
