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.

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.

The name Abeja, which means bee, is meant to reflect the passion and care wine-maker John Abbott has for the land that produces this delicious Cab.

Vintage: 2006 11/27/2012

Ripe, supple and expressive, offering a mouthful of tobacco-accented cherry, currant and floral aromas and flavors that sail effortlessly over modest tannins into the long, balanced finish. Drink now through 2014. 2,800 cases made

Vintage: 2005 11/08/2008

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.

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.
