Review: 2007 Robert Craig Affinity Cabernet Sauvignon

Review: 2007 Robert Craig Affinity Cabernet Sauvignon

We’ve reviewed several vintages of Robert Craig’s Bordeaux-styled Affinity, but the 2007 is one of the best yet.

This year’s blend is heavier on the petit verdot, with a composition of 79% cabernet sauvignon, 10% petit verdot, 8% merlot, 2% cabernet franc, and 1% malbec.

The result is impressive, a deep, cherry-infused wine with coffee and cocoa notes. The finish is jammy, almost sweet, but quite mild. Tannins are almost absent her, giving this wine a quiet demeanor and a lightness that makes it easy to drink solo, rare for a cab blend and particularly one of this youth. Something different from Robert Craig abnd worth seeking out.
