Robert Craig Affinity 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The entry-level wine, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. Aged 18 months in 70% new barrels, this deeply hued blend is a plush, medium to full-bodied effort that has plenty of black fruits, tobacco, chocolate, and dried spice-like aromas and flavors. It shows the austerity in its tannins that's common in the vintage yet offers plenty of fruit as well as purity.
