Abeja Merlot 2018


FROM WINERY – Displays the classic Abeja style with a rich, alluring nose brimming with fig, maple and baking spices. A welcoming entry is full and flavorful, with a moderately full weight. Next, an inky medley of pepper, fig compote and black walnut greet the midpalate and continue as notes of black tea and cassis appear throughout a lingering finish.

ACCOLADES –“The 13 Best New Merlots to Buy Right Now” Robb Report “Sexy, plush, round and sweet but also shapely and firm; a serious mouthful of Merlot with noteworthy depth to its flavors… With its terrific breadth and supple, sweet tannins, this is an uncommonly sophisticated Washington Merlot.” Stephen Tanzer, 93 pts.

“Lots of elegant black cherry, mulberry, and darker currant fruits… Medium-bodied, it has an elegant, rather narrow mouthfeel, good balance, and polished tannins. It’s nicely balanced and certainly has lots of charm.” Jeb Dunnuck, 90 pts.
