Abeja 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
Columbia Valley, Washington

Located in the heart of Washington wine country, Abeja uses fruit from both its own vineyards and grapes grown by long-term contracted estates in the Columbia Valley. Abeja's focus on Cabernet Sauvignon stems from the belief that the grape will be the iconic varietal of Washington. With a blend of 84 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 14 percent Merlot, 1 percent Cabernet Franc and 1 percent Petit Verdot, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, elegant, and perfectly balanced.

Suggested Cut: A succulent bone-in ribeye pairs wonderfully with this robust red.
