Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley 2009

Member Review by Chris Carpita:

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

Hmm...a bit of sweet candied fruit here, but very smokey as well even with some hints of runts candy! The palette brings a mouthful of hot fruit and tannin, making this a very puzzling wine, which I like!
