With the 2013 vintage, Robert Craig Vineyards presents the next generation of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Their primary mission is to produce wines that feature pure site expression, and this new Cabernet Sauvignon bottling is no exception. Selected half from their estate vineyards and half from exceptional vineyards around the valley, Robert Craig Vineyards presents this plush, beautifully structured wine, with the depth and power you expect from a Classic Napa Valley Cabernet. As "Affinity" moves to a single-vineyard bottling, this wine steps in to take its place in our portfolio.
Just south of Stag’s Leap, nestled in the Mt. George Foothills on the eastern side of the Napa Valley, the La Londe estate vineyard has produced exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon since Bob Craig purchased the property back in 1993. As a hillside, cane-pruned site that bears just 2.8 tons per acre, the 30-year-old vines allow a rare display of the volcanic, stony soils in the finished wines. Grapes are small, deeply red flavored, and undeniably racy with a big backbone of acidity. Despite an inherent suppleness, the 2013 Affinity Cabernet will cellar easily for decades to come.
