Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Reserve 2004

Member Review by luckylou:

Seemed almost more like a Pinot Noir than a cab. Very laid back, not overpowering, yet strong enough to hold up to a meal. Nice flavors.

Spanish for bee, name is pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha'. Name is chosen for its simple beauty and its reminder of times past when farming implied a respect for the environment and close connection to the earth. Abeja is located on a century olad farmstead in the breathtaking foothills of the Blue Mountains. Once seriously dilapidated, all of the original farm buildings have been carefully restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity. Creative use of salvaged materials adds interest and sets the stage for renewed purpose in these old buildings, which now house our winery and our guests. Read less

Full of fruit flavors, smooth finish. Not overly heavy on tannins.

One of the best Cabs I've tried. I had a bottle of it at the winery this year and think it will continue to get better each year. I'm buying 10 bottles!

Abeja is the new project from the former winemaker of Canoe Ridge and Acacia, John Abbott. The cépage this year has a tiny bit of Merlot-4%--and the rest is Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a big, rich wine coming from a great vintage in Washington. The nose has ripe raspberry and plum aromas seasoned with sweet oak. The palate is broad and rich. The finish has big tannins balanced by impressive acidity.
