Abeja 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

Abeja 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

Rating: 15/20

Region: Columbia Valley, Washington

Varietals: 94 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 percent Merlot & 2 percent Petit Verdot

Production: 1,913 cases

Alcohol: 14.9 percent

Tasting Notes: Located in the Walla Walla Valley, Abeja is a beautifully restored historic estate comprising an inn and a winery. One of GAYOT’s Top 10 Wine Country Inns in the U.S., The Inn at Abeja provides guests a great way to experience the region and its wines, including Abeja’s fine Cabernet Sauvignon. Sourced from four vineyards, including Sagemoor Farms, Hedges Estate, Red Mountain and the winery’s own Heather Hill, the 2010 Cab is an elegant and balanced expression of Columbia Valley fruit. On the nose, it features fragrant plum, blueberry and floral aromas. Dark berry flavors dominate on the palate alongside more earthy notes of cedar and spice.

Food Pairings: Steak, lamb chops, risotto
