Abeja Heather Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
FROM THE WINERY
“A compelling and nuanced red, with black cherry and blueberry flavors that take on savory mocha and black olive details on the way to refined tannins. Drink now through 2031.” Tim Fish, Wine Spectator “The 100% varietal 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Heather Hill is a killer effort by the Wampflers. Quite dark in the glass, it exudes class, presenting anise and black currant tones alongside tilled soil and suggestions of mocha on the nose. The palate is exceedingly well-balanced, offering salty undertones that combine with a brilliantly, age-worthy effort that will captivate the senses for many years to come. Enjoy over the next 15-plus years.” Owen Bargreen, Vinous 94 pts. “A dense nose of blackberry, blackcurrant, leather, coffee and chopped walnut. Full-bodied with fine tannins. Rich and lush on the palate, where there’s an abyss of black fruit. Very well balanced and polished. This needs some more time to show its true potential. Best after 2024.” James Suckling, 93 pts. “Tight and focused with beautiful cassis and dark raspberry as well as notes of violets, lavender, tobacco and chalky minerality. Medium to full-bodied, pure and elegant with terrific minerality, a good mid-palate density, and plenty of length on the finish. Hold for 3-4 years and age for 15+.” Jeb Dunnuck, 93 pts.
