Product Overview

92 Points - Wine Advocate: "The least expensive wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity, the estate Cabernet Sauvignon from the foothills just south of Stag√¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s Leap blended with small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. An absolutely stunning value in Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, the wine has an inky/purple color, a big sweet kiss of cr√É©me de cassis, spice box, mocha and assorted black fruits. It is full-bodied and ripe with low acidity and sweet tannins. This wine is showy and up front, but has enough stuffing to last 7-10 years or more. Robert Craig is still one of the most consistent wineries in terms of quality and keeping pricing within realistic levels, not something frequently seen in Napa Valley." -RP Oct, 2014

91 Points - Vinous: "The 2012 Affinity is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon-based entry-level offering from Robert Craig. Dark red plums, tobacco and spices blossom in a supple, radiant wine to drink now and over the next few years. The flavors brighten up through the mid-palate and finish, adding energy and polish."

Varietal Composition: 78 Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 Merlot, 6 Petit Verdot, 5 Malbec, 1 Cabernet Franc
Aging: 18 Months in Chateau-style French oak, 65 percent new, 35 percent 2nd year
