This subtly tarry blend of 80 percent cabernet sauvignon with merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot, offers a nicely resolved array of blackcurrant aromas and flavors with fine and fresh tanins. Drink or hold.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity is a gorgeous entry-level offering. Ripe and plummy, with striking up-front fruit, the 2016 has a lot to offer, including tons of immediacy and sheer appeal. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, vanilla and sweet spice add to the wine's racy, inviting personality. The Affinity is now mostly (85%) estate grown fruit from a site in Coombsville.
"Reflecting the attributes of the La Londe Vineyard in the foothills of Mount George, our Affinity Cabernet is grown at 400’ of elevation on sparse, volcanic soils. This is the third release of Affinity as an estate grown wine and our most successful to date. The 2016 has the power to cellar for decades, yet is supple enough to enjoy while young." - Winery
