Robert Craig Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity 2009 750ml

Robert Craig Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity

93 Points Wine Enthusiast: "...one of their best, right up there with the 2007. It’s a beautiful wine, absolutely dry, tannic, smooth and complex in black currant flavor. A bright streak of acidity provides wonderful balance, and should help the wine to age through at least 2019."

Aroma: Complex fragrance of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and dark espresso, with underlying crushed granite and floral notes of dusty rose petal and violets. Flavors: Rich, concentrated black and red fruit flavors are wide and deep. Sleek, silky tannins bring substantial weight to the mid-palate, topped with layers of cassis, graphite, roasted coffee and violets. Finish: The sweet tannins stride down the finish, bringing along black pepper, cigar box spice and a pronounced minerality. General: A dense, racy and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon, perfect for a ribeye. Decanting is recommended.

Robert Craig Winery selected by Wine & Spirits Magazine as a "Top 100 Winery of the Year" for 2012! Robert Craig Winery has been named to the Wine & Spirits "Top 100 Wineries" of the year, it was announced on Sept. 17. Those wineries from around the world that have delivered "the best overall performances" in the magazine's tastings are selected for this honor. Vintner Robert Craig will pour two highly rated wines, the 2009 Howell Mountain Zinfandel and 2009 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, at the W&S Top 100 Tasting on Oct. 17 in San Francisco.

Created by Robert Craig in 1993, this classic Napa Valley Bordeauxstyle Cabernet Sauvignon is always predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon. Petit Verdot is added to the blend for concentrated flavors and a touch of Malbec for further weight, complimented by silky Merlot and Cabernet Franc spice. The fruit is hand-picked, hand-sorted and kept in separate lots during fermentation and barrel aging. Unfiltered and unfined.

Good but needs a few hours to unwind
