Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Reserve 2005
Increasingly recognized as the icon varietal of Washington State, Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the majority of Abeja's production. And boy do they do Cabernet well! This Cabernet is stylish, elegant, and impeccably balanced. Abeja accomplishes this by meticulous viticultural management, utilization of a rare sorting system, gentle handling of the fruit and the wine, customized practices for every lot no matter how small, and carefully selected French oak.
A varietal Cabernet that exhibits the brooding depth this variety can achieve: grilled meat, toasted boule bread, savory herbs, crushed blackberries, cigar wrapper and fresh leather swirl into a delicious, harmonious flavor field with a persistent finish.
