Product Overview

The 2016 Freemark Abbey Bosché Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the small 22-acre vineyard on the famed Rutherford Bench, is dark ruby in color, with fruit aromas of black cherry, blueberry, and red raspberry complimented with dark chocolate, black pepper, forest floor, aromatic cedar, and leather notes. The oak spice is fairly integrated, adding to the overall complexity. The texture on the palate has a smooth entry, with well-resolved tannins that promise the ability for long aging. The fruit acidity provides a very pleasant lengthy finish.

Varietal Composition: 89.8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10.2% Merlot
Appellation: Rutherford AVA
Aging: 27.5 months in French oak, 67% new
Winemakers: Ted Edwards, Kristy Melton

94 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Mineral-driven and bright in acidity, this wine is smooth and supple, integrated and complex. With length and breadth, its forceful flavors of dust, juicy black cherry and dried herb combine effortlessly into toasted oak and a length of nutmeg and black pepper." -VB, 7/1/20

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosché Vineyard comes prancing out of the glass with showy Black Forest cake, blackberry pie and blackcurrant cordial scents with hints of unsmoked cigars, pencil lead, olives and morello cherries. Medium to full-bodied, it has a lovely ripe, rounded tannin texture and layers of black fruits and herbal accents, finishing on a perfumed note. 2,021 cases were made." -LPB, 9/30/19
