Freemark Abbey Napa Valley 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, $28.04-$36.99, 88 points, appeared core black trending crushed blackberry toward the transparent rim.
The nose was near dumb, but subtle oak, sea breezes, licorice, and black grape were pleasant enough.
The full body was smooth with ample acidity and layered easy tannin which made for a rather plush presentation.
Black currant contributed to the flavors mirrored to the aroma.
Finished fair with the trailing palate, a touch of the 14.5% alcohol, vegetable notes, and mild spice.
