Muscular and fruit-filled, the Freemark Abbey Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is a red wine to write home about. Aromas of black fruit, Bing cherry, dark chocolate, red raspberry, green olive, and tobacco mingle to form a juicy and savory bouquet. The palate is also complex, with flavors of spiced sweet oak, cedar, cinnamon, clove, and a dash of black pepper. These layers provide great depth, and they complement the full-bodied texture of the wine.
Enjoy this red wine with a variety of meals, such as grilled red meats.
