I've enjoyed drinking and selling Freemark for over 15 yrs. The 2011 vintage is frankly horrible. Tart red fruits, med bodied and short.

Old school Napa Cab! Really nice balance, 2011 and 13.5 alc. Cherry with spice and vanilla from nicely integrated American oak.

The Bootleg is a very easy drinking Freemark Abbey cab. Softer and rounder than some of their others. There's still a bit of grass/herb in this that might back down a bit with time.

Overall uneven, quite savory, floral notes and berry fruits, thin, better with overnight decanting

Not up to the 2010 standards for me. A touch thin and a bit green for me.

Tore off into this guy last night too. Really great wine for the price. Will definitely keep this on rotation.

This is the best cab I’ve had so far...not that I’ve had many. 😀 It’s fruity, a little tart, tannins, tasted better a day after. I’d still turn it into a spiced wine...maybe I don’t like wine after all. Hmmm... Bought it at a grocery store in the clearance bin for $15.99.

Good tannic wine with a bite on an early finish. Not the top vintage or wine but solid drink
