Tasting Notes from the Curator

Embarking on this oenological journey, one unveils layers of dark fruit enigmas veiled in a complex array of spices, as blackberry and cassis permeate the air in a dusky embrace. There is a whisper of sweet oak spice bearing subtle toasty notes that bespeak its oak-aging lineage, while cinnamon and clove emerge in a warm, curious tangle of complexity. Exuding an antithetical charm of flavorful conflict, the spicy kick of black pepper dances with the elegant, refined scent of cedar. Rooted in the vintner’s arcane, this potion bears the impressive full-bodied stature one anticipates from a storied Cabernet Sauvignon. While a refined veil of dark cocoa powder unfolds in the cavernous palate of the imbiber, rendering an indulgent grandeur, a robust, structured tannicity clasps hand with a balanced acidity that vibrates with life, and the long, fruitful finish leaves an enduring impression, holding one in the embrace of a harmonious symphony of taste sensations.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Red Meat Companions: Best paired with prime cuts, char-grilled to perfection, and adorned with minimalist seasonings to let the wine’s robust character shine.

  • Herbaceous Harmony: Harmonize with dishes that feature rosemary, thyme, and sage, herbs that echo the wine’s aromatic complexity.

  • Cheese Partners: Opt for aged cheddar or gouda, allowing the wine’s tannic structure to entwine with the cheeses’ rich textures.

  • Decadent Desserts: Conclude with a flourish of dark chocolate or berry-dominated sweets, echoing the wine’s fruit-driven finish.

    A Vignette of Victory and Valor

  • Naming Elegance: Originally known as Tychson Cellars after its founder, the winery underwent a transformation to embody a blend of its 1939 owners’ names, thus christened ‘Freemark Abbey’—a beacon of wine terroir transcendence.

  • Resilience Through Prohibition: The epoch of Prohibition saw many wineries falter, yet Freemark Abbey stood resilient, continuing under the guise of sacramental wine production.

  • A Pioneering Spirit: It’s not simply the full-bodied taste, but the story behind Freemark Abbey that captivates—a winery that has pioneered many of the practices we see as standard today.

  • International Acclaim: Perhaps most illustrious is the winery’s inclusion in the famed ‘Judgment of Paris’ in 1976, ascending the ranks of global winemaking with its red and white wine offerings, a narrative that continues to intrigue and inspire.
