Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

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.

Rich in texture, with polished tannins framing a complex range of flavors, centering on black cherry, with hints of coffee, rare beef and clove as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2015. 2,240 cases made.
