Robert Craig Affinity, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Tasting Notes: Delicious black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, some spice box, licorice and incense are all present in this supple-textured, medium to full-bodied, opulent wine, which is sexy, lush and ideal for drinking over the next decade or more. The color is a healthy dense purple, and the wine full-bodied and textured, with a beautiful finish and real harmony.
James Suckling 93/00: Aromas of ripe fruit, walnuts and dark chocolate with some cloves. Full body, chewy tannins and an extracted finish. Lots of phenolic character. A little old school in style this year, but it shows promise. Better in 2020.
Food Pairing: Beef, Lamb, Game (deer, venison), Mature and hard cheese, Poultry.
