Reflecting the attributes of the La Londe Vineyard in the foothills of Mount George, the Robert Craig Affinity Cabernet is grown at 400’ of elevation on sparse, volcanic soils. This is the third release of Affinity as an estate grown wine. The 2016 has the power to cellar for decades, yet is supple enough to enjoy while young.

The 2016 Affinity Cabernet is gorgeous, with up-front ripe and plummy fruit. The older vines at La Londe Vineyard deliver lovely, ripe red cherry and raspberry jam on the palate, with hints of vanilla and sweet spice rounding out this wine’s inviting personality. This vintage shows well upon release — with a beautiful, inherent suppleness — but a year or two (or a decade) of cellar time will help the wine show its best.

45' decant. I get cigar box, vanilla, leather, blueberry, blackberry, and grainy tannins. Smooth finish with vanilla, oak, black cherry, and cassis. Good wine, but not a good QPR. I'd choose the Integrity over this wine any day.
