    The Robert Craig Affinity Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, a testament to the renowned craftsmanship of the Robert Craig Winery under the guidance of Winemaker Jason Price. This vintage, sourced exclusively from the La Londe Vineyard in Coombsville’s Mt. George foothills, unveils a symphony of flavors that epitomizes the essence of site expression.

    In the glass, the 2019 Affinity unveils a profound, inky black hue that mirrors the vineyard’s volcanic soils. The nose is an intricate dance of aromas, as pure cassis and the delicate allure of espresso beans intertwine, creating an invitation to explore further. The fragrance is subtly layered with the herbal grace of sage, echoing the vineyard’s untamed surroundings.

    On the palate, this wine emerges as a harmonious blend of power and elegance. While the tannins are notably present, they are refined, embodying the very essence of balance. Dark fruit flavors, led by the majestic blackcurrant, take center stage, carrying the wine’s core with distinction. Thanks to the expertly integrated Bordeaux varieties, the Cabernet Sauvignon’s character blooms, revealing its full potential. Despite the structural intensity, the wine maintains a remarkable supple quality, culminating in a finish that lingers with vibrant acidity.

    Earning a well-deserved 90 points from Robert Parker, this 2019 Affinity embodies its Coombsville origins. The wine exudes an air of collectibility and age-worthiness, ensuring it will find a revered place in any cellar. With meticulous attention from vine to bottle, the Robert Craig Affinity Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 stands as a tribute to the La Londe Vineyard, where dedication and terroir combine to create a truly exceptional Napa Valley Cabernet.

    75 reviews for Robert Craig Affinity Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

    1. Brenda Back

      Juicy and young, slightly better than ’13 but not as good as ’12.

    2. Rosemarie Mason

      Approachable but less structured than 2013, with Napa Cabernet notes of fruit, cassis, minerals, anise, and chocolate. Good value for $50.

    3. John Finwall

      Delicious black fruit with dark chocolate and toasty oak notes. Full-bodied with firm tannins and a long finish. Great now, better with age.

    4. Matthew Rhoads

      Robert Craig’s Affinity Cabernet is an estate-grown wine with a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petite Verdot, 5% Merlot, 3% Malbec, and 2% Cabernet Franc. It has a nice aromatic profile with black cherries, blackberries, and spicy vanilla. It is a full-bodied wine with low-to-medium acidity, silky tannins, and a nicely integrated oak finish. Drink now-2027.

    5. Carmella Terry

      Full-bodied with smooth tannins, this wine offers rich blackberry, black cherry, and currant notes with hints of chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla.

    6. Jerry Frazier

      Dense, luscious Bordeaux-style wine with black cherry, blackberry, and black raspberry flavors. Licorice, dark chocolate, and vanilla notes with smooth tannins. Approachable now and will improve with age.

    7. Carlotta Stead

      Solid dark fruit with notes of dark raspberry. Enjoyed.

    8. Donald Pike

      Great Cab, perfect with duck. Multiple fruit layers and wonderful finish. Perfect gift.

    9. Brian Fink

      Rich blackberry and cherry notes with a touch of earth and spring flowers. Fruit-forward and complex, this lovely Cabernet Sauvignon is priced at $60 and benefits from a decant of two hours. Drink now or age for three years to reach its peak. Medium to long finish.

    10. Sophie Ohare

      Jammy blackberry aroma with hints of vanilla and honey. Spicy blackberry palate with tobacco and herb notes. Fruity with moderate acidity and tannins. A pleasant, crowd-pleasing blend.

    11. Amy Damon

      Balanced with notes of cigar and black cherry. Soft and dry tannins. Will improve over 2-4 years.

    12. Mary Luck

      Inky tone with ruby rim. Medium aromaticity. Dark fruit, spice, and gripping tannins.

    13. Marian Crosby

      Garnet colored. No sediment. Aromas of blackberry, forest floor, mineral, and coffee. Flavors of blackberry, black currant (cassis), and forest floor.

    14. Charisse Harris

      Needs more aging, better after 30 minutes.

    15. Robert Shelton

      Needs more time to develop.

    16. Rodney Lozano

      Balanced and fresh with dense structure and power. Blue and black fruit with minerality.

    17. Jacki Benedict

      Great potential with black raspberries, cherries, spice notes, and minerality. Drink 2020-2028.

    18. Angie Underwood

      Smooth and well-balanced wine with a nice bouquet. Lacks complexity.

    19. James Casavant

      Powerful and thick, Pietros’ Napa Valley Cabernet is a big chewy wine with great flavors. It’s not easy to drink now, but will be wonderful in a year or two.

    20. Irene Wells

      Improved with age.

    21. Joan Castillo

      Cabernet from single vineyard, tastes and smells like mountain fruit. Price increased to $70.

    22. Harry Cumming

      Sexy, ink-black pour.

    23. Grover Decourcey

      Solid wine with minerals, spice, red currants and mild oak. Medium finish.

    24. Cara Lymon

      Napa oozemonster with overpowering coconut and lactone flavors. Bitter and astringent finish.

    25. Daniel Allen

      Plum Market Luxury Tasting (Bad Hunter – Chicago IL): Big and dense start, but too oaky. Less composed middle forward. Good enough in its style, but not thrilling.

    26. Louis Marchand

      Rich yet elegant with hints of plum, blueberry, black currant, dark chocolate, and clove. Lively acidity and fine tannin balance the generous fruit, ending with a licorice root finish.

    27. Regina Swisher

      Black berry and boysenberry notes on nose and palate, big body, mouth-filling fruit, needs cellar time, long finish, better on the second night.

    28. Candace Gordon

      Smooth and balanced with juicy fruit notes. Perfect to enjoy with friends.

    29. Frank Luckie

      Great wine!

    30. Kenneth Greig

      Strong Napa cab with muscular tannins, balanced fruit, and vanilla and oak influence. Softens in a few years.

    31. Carmen Almanza

      Not worth it. Low QPR and lacks complexity, despite trying to improve it with a decant and aerator. Better options available for cheaper.

    32. Jenna Ales

      Affinity: Big, smoky, earthy, and punches above its weight. Pleasantly surprised after years.

    33. John Fisher

      “Blackberry and cherry aromas. Opens up into a classy Napa Cabernet. Excellent.”

    34. Harley Walker

      Stunningly well-meshed classic Bordeaux blend, rich and balanced with black cherry and coffee flavors. Perfect for Meritage fans and great value for money.

    35. Juan Mcdaniel

      Mediocre.

    36. Constance Dayton

      Aroma of strawberry, raspberry preserves and pine needles. Decanted for 2 hours. Initial tannin sting but mellows on the finish.

    37. Terry Eastman

      Fruit-forward nose of blackberry, boysenberry, and spring flowers. Big-bodied with mouth-filling fruit and a long finish. Terrific tonight.

    38. Timmy Ziegler

      A year later, this wine still packs a punch. Dark fruit and black licorice notes. Drink now or hold for further improvement.

    39. Lauren Lamas

      Dark garnet with a black cherry and spice aroma. Medium alcohol and high acidity with a big cherry and chocolate flavor. Tannins are balancing. Good but not worth the price. Will improve with age.

    40. Andre Moreno

      Grippy tannins and smooth flavors.

    41. Charles Thomas

      Pure and nuanced with dark berries, chocolate pudding, red licorice, Spring flowers, and vanilla. Full-bodied with microfiber tannins. Enjoy now until 2030.

    42. Walter Thill

      Deep ruby/purple with more oak than fruit on the nose. Rich, sappy cherry and plum palate with good grip, balance, and acidity. Slightly blurred fruit and chalky/grippy tannins. Mostly American oak, big but not overpowering. 77% Cab S, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot, 4% Cab F, 4% Malbec. Will age but not a long distance runner. (91+)

    43. Edward Wade

      Palate filled with licorice and black currant. Cheers!

    44. Lois Newton

      Blackberry, raspberry, plum, and earthy notes on the nose and palate. Full-bodied with mouth-filling fruit and a long finish. Enjoy now or for the next 8 years.

    45. Richard Rivas

      Black fruit, currants, allspice, chocolate on nose and palate. Big body, soft tannins, mouth-filling fruit, medium finish. Delicious now, peaks in 3 years.

    46. Daniel Pitts

      Medium-bodied with a short finish, this Napa cab has a nose of oak and spice, with little detectable fruit. Some hints of vanilla and baking spices. Aeration didn’t help – prefer drinking straight from the bottle.

    47. Phillip Commodore

      Great Napa cab. Smooth finish.

    48. Douglas Shoemaker

      Solid effort. Drink or hold.

    49. Pat Jones

      Aromas of blackberry, raspberry, and leather with a full-bodied, fruit-filled palate. Great value at $50, can cellar for 7 years. Not my top pick but enjoyable with a long finish.

    50. Nicholas Gullatt

      Sorry, I cannot rewrite the review as there is no existing review provided. Please provide the review for me to rewrite.

    51. Mary Pendleton

      Lovely, bright fruit notes of cherries and raspberries.

    52. Manuel Roberts

      Black-red with tobacco, dark berries, plums, and earthy notes. Slightly astringent finish. Love it!

    53. Imelda Davis

      Deep indigo color. Raspberry, plum, cassis on the palate. Full-bodied with a hint of pepper and clove on the finish.

    54. Eula Allison

      “This wine has a nice ripe fruit flavor, full mouthfeel, and a good finish. It’s a Craig winner and great to drink right upon opening.”

    55. Kathleen Cantara

      Dark currents and berries dance on the palate, pairing perfectly with grilled buffalo. Cheers!

    56. Charles Halverson

      Soft Napa Cab with Bordeaux Blend varietals. Smooth and aged, drinking well now.

    57. Christine Mcdonald

      2018 Affinity red wine from Coombsville. Fleshy black plums, vanilla, mixed spices. Medium tannins, medium body, balanced acidity. Crushed gravel, blackberries, cherries. Long finish. Drink till 2029.

    58. Sharon Williams

      Great Napa blend.

    59. Antonio Smith

      Intensely flavorful mountain fruit. The quintessential high-tier cabernet for steakhouse dining.

    60. Jose Corley

      Needs aging.

    61. Vickie Altieri

      Dark violet color with intense raspberries, dried leather, and some eucalyptus and sweet tobacco on the nose. Full, round, tangy, and textured palate with black and red fruit and savory notes. Drink 2022 – 2026. Technical score: 91. Enjoyment score: 91.

    62. Dennis Griffith

      Excellent Cabernet blend from mostly Coombsville AVA. Strong fruit with leathery body, tobacco and cassis prominent. Grippy tannins with smooth finish after decanting. Robert Craig is a great Cabernet maker.

    63. Ruth Mason

      Fruity, medium tannin, pleasant aroma.

    64. Helen Cave

      Ripe dark fruit, powerful with oak notes.

    65. Linda Paez

      Elegant but inferior to Jessup Cabernet. Not recommended for tasting order.

    66. Dianne Knox

      Fruit dominant, light-bodied wine with notes of black cherry and aged oak. Easy drinker that pairs well with poultry and fish. Best enjoyed within 2-3 years.

    67. Teresa Solomon

      RC is a great intro wine. A bit too fruity on first taste, but settles down well. Less blueberry-ee now.

    68. Jeffrey Simpson

      Balanced and smooth wine with pronounced milk chocolate, red cherries, and blackcurrant flavors. No need to decant. Enjoyable score of 93.

    69. Sara Walquist

      Review: Alchemist Bar & Lounge (San Francisco) – Dark ripe red fruits with a core of black fruits, gentle earth and some chocolate appear with some time. Good juiciness and freshness with gentle steeped tea and minerals. Surprising freshness but loses its health after being opened for a while.

    70. Anna Jones

      WSET Diploma Class Tasting: Deep purple with pronounced intensity and youthful aromas of cassis, cherry, prune, heavily stewed red currant and black currant, spice, smoke, toasted oak, vanilla, chocolate. Dry, full-bodied with chewy high tannins, high alcohol, and intense flavors. Medium(+) finish. Good, not for bottle aging.

    71. Mildred Bartolini

      Fun blend of boysenberry, cocoa and spice.

    72. Mary Deruyter

      Deep purple with notes of berries and cinnamon. Absolutely awesome.

    73. Kim Mcgowan

      ‘Funky nose at first, but fades fast. Prefer ’20 and ’18 vintage for better integration. Nevertheless, still delightful.’

    74. Daniel Dowd

      Dark magenta wine with cranberry and black cherry aroma. Red fruit palette with a medium finish. Resembles Rivers Marie NV cab.

    75. Angelo Lucas

      “Nice grip of blueberry and dried fruits with a pleasant medium finish.”

    Critical Acclaim

    WA 90
    Wine Advocate
    Drawn from a site in Coombsville, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity is a dark-fruited, slightly herbal effort, with hints of sage that clog around the edges of the blackcurrant core. It's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and dense but not unapproachable, with ripe tannins that join mouthwatering fruit on the finish.
