    Winemaker Notes
    For the second vintage, Robert Craig Cellars is pleased to present Affinity as a 100% estate grown, single-vineyard bottling from La Londe Vineyard, their estate vineyard in the Mt. George foothills just south of Stag’s Leap.
    The structure in the 2014 is incredibly dense, coming from some of the smallest berries ever received from La Londe – a result of early budbreak, extended hang time and the third year of a major drought. It has tremendous depth and concentration, with opulent black raspberry and black currant flavors wrapped in fragrant aromas of licorice, incense and spice box.
    Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petite Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc

    93: James Suckling
    Aromas of ripe fruit, walnuts and dark chocolate with some cloves. Full body, chewy tannins and a extracted finish. Lots of phenolic character. A little old school in style this year, but it shows promise. Better in 2020.

    92: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    Their least expensive wine from 2014 is their blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest Petite Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc called Affinity. 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. Drink it over the next decade.
