Freemark Abbey

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Medium hues out of the bottle from this 75% cab blend. Nice texture with a full mouth of dark fruits and cherries. Nicely integrated tannins. Medium spices on the finish. — 15 days ago

Abbey Ridge Pinot Noir 2016

Stellar! Classic Oregon vibrancy with a hearty amount of VA but they are well paired. Many a premier cru would be envious. — a month ago

Freemark Abbey

Napa Valley Merlot 2016

I don’t really have any relationship to Merlot, so I thought it was time to spend some time with a bottle. Though not necessarily known for this grape, Freemark Abbey is a name to remember - the first winery in CA founded by a woman and an American delegate at the 1976 Judgement of Paris tasting. I figured an Oakville right bank blend was as close as I’m going to come soon to a young Pomerol. The wine was a deep garnet purple, almost opaque, and after an hour in decanter I got wild blackberry and rhubarb, dark chocolate and tobacco chilling with some decreasingly opinionated tannins. We’ll see how it compares to the next, but I’m happy. $32, 2016 — 10 days ago

St. Bernardus Brouwerij

Prior 8 Belgian Abbey Ale Beer

Maduro brown with mahogany polish; solid cap of varying creams. Low-helium balloon, slow drop lacing bejeweled like lively paramecia. There is a sweet cola entry which builds malt and date and brown sugar scope, adding vanilla bean and cocoa. Chewed leather, candied ginger, waterlogged ginseng, almond, pecan, chestnut and bourbon notes. Lighter-than-anticipated mouthfeel expresses tea versus cola implied, but leaves you ruminating on it’s perfection, which is somehow like dark toasted phyllo brushed with maple living like a wafer inside of a bonbon biosphere. Several roots are prominent; sassafras, ginger, man back, and glazed, roasted carrots. There is an overshadowing of coffee, though thin, and carob. The malt prevails, to plant the Belgian flag. Tastes of gritty, rustic elements, but flows like fine silks. Bravo! .
