2002 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Bosché Vineyard
(USA, California, Napa Valley)
The nose has dark fruits,cedar and floral scents. Very nice and was hinting toward old world. Decanted for 30 minutes and the dark fruits started to come out much more than when we first opened. A medium ruby red in color and looking like dark cherries. The palate was dark fruits all the way and hinting of pipe tobacco. This wine has depth and is on the darker side all the way. Also some plum and green pepper with the earthiness. The tannins were well balanced. Nice long finish however the finish got a hair to dark for me and the tobacco really lingered and overtook the palate. Great wine, big cab and this wine will continue to age nicely. Definite try at 60 buck per bottle.
