2016 ROBERT CRAIG AFFINITY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$70.00 $65.00 $65.00

Since its debut in the early 1990’s, Robert Craig’s Affinity gained the attention of many of the world’s top wine critics, sommeliers and collectors.  In the September 2001 Issue of Decanter titled “Cult Cabernets the Next Generation” Affinity was predicted to potentially emerge as one of Napa Valley’s next cult Cabernets.  More than two decades since its inception, the new 2016 is stunningly compelling and crafted in a deep, supple style that glides across your palate with attractive blueberry and penetrating blackberry, interwoven with creme de cassis, graphite, dried violets and milk chocolate.  At under $100/btl this is an easy “go-to” for a top-quality Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Carved from the La Londe Vineyard nestled in the Mt. George Foothills of Coombsville, the 30 year old vines bear fruit of remarkable qualities.  Ascending from 18 months in French oak and more than a year in the bottle, this wine caresses your palate in supple tannins and inherent purity, perfectly complimented by its muscular extraction and regal authority.  I strongly recommend a case of this iconic Napa Valley wine for your cellar.

Description

2016 ROBERT CRAIG “AFFINITY” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

 

From James Suckling, “This subtly tarry blend of cabernet sauvignon with merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot, offers a nicely resolved array of blackcurrant aromas and flavors with fine and fresh tannins. Drink or hold.” 93 Points

From Vinous, “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity is a gorgeous entry-level offering. Ripe and plummy, with striking up-front fruit, the 2016 has a lot to offer, including tons of immediacy and sheer appeal. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, vanilla and sweet spice add to the wine’s racy, inviting personality. The Affinity is now mostly (85%) estate grown fruit from a site in Coombsville.” 92 Points
