2019 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon


FROM THE WINERY – Sophisticated layers of wild blackberry, forest and baking spice mingle on the nose with violets, leather and vanilla. A well structured palate is artfully balanced by a fullness in fruit, fine-grain tannins and well suited acidity. Morello cherries appear with black pepper, lavender, cocoa powder on the palate. Towards the close, darker notes of walnut and dark plum emerge and continue throughout a lengthy finish


94 Points – Wine Spectator “Offers finesse and structure with elegantly
expressive blackberry, basil and black olive flavors that build richness
towards polished tannins. Drink now through 2028.”

93 Points – James Suckling “Attractive dark plums and berries make for an
attractive nose that carries a sense of ripe fruit with freshness intact. The palate follows
suit with a sleek, rich serving of blackberries and black currants, framed
in smooth-honed tannins. Drink or hold.”
