Abeja Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Thursday, September 3, 2009

Winemaker John Abbott founded Abeja with Ken Harrison in 2002. Prior to starting Abeja, Abbott had served as winemaker at Canoe Ridge. Located in Walla Walla, Abeja focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon along with limited bottlings of Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Viognier. In select years - thus far only 2002 and 2005 - Abeja releases a reserve Cabernet blended from their best barrels.

Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Columbia Valley 2005

A power-packed nose with abundant campfire aromas along with spice, cigar box, and pencil shavings. Rich on the palate with soft fruit. An impressively long finish caps off this excellent effort. 100% Cabernet. 14.9% alcohol.

  2. Sean,
    Couldn't agree more. Had it around Christmas time and was floored at how good it was. I think I've got a note up somewhere for it. Big fan of Abeja--especially the cab and syrah.
