From: Columbia Valley, Washington, US
Varietal: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc
Abeja founders Ken and Ginger Harrison came to Walla Walla Valley in the late 1990s in search of land suitable for planting world class Cabernet Sauvignon. It was while searching for an ideal vineyard location that the couple discovered an extraordinary historic farmstead that captured their hearts and sparked their imagination. The idea for Abeja began to take hold. Not only was the property suited for grape growing and winemaking, but by restoring the farmstead’s existing buildings, the Harrisons saw the opportunity to preserve the property’s rich heritage while creating a one-of-a-kind Walla Walla wine country destination.
Tasting Notes: An intriguing nose displays aromas of cola, cloves, leather and plum. Muscular tannins are well balanced by fruit and come into further harmony with earthy, sophisticated layers. On the palate huckleberry, cassis and Morello cherries are matched by briny olive, walnut and black pepper which drive toward a lingering finish. While a beauty in its youth, this wine’s depth and complexity promises to deliver further enjoyment with time.
