Columbia Valley

9-Liter Format, Etched

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon 9L

Crafting a Cabernet with dark dense color, richness and complexity, and a bright fruit-
ful nose is one thing. Combining that with elegance, finesse, and superb balance is quite another. The 2005 growing season gave us every opportunity to accomplish both, and this Cabernet is a beautiful illustration of an exceptional vintage. It is absolutely complete, abundant, and balanced.

This wine has pretty aromas of ripe cherry, black briar berry, and a hint of fresh fig. Its sleek structure frames a layer of sweet cassis, mountain strawberry, and shaved chocolate. Wood spice and lustrous tannins are in perfect balance and lead to a magnificent finish.

Wine Profile
Ratings
"In this warm, ripe, lush and forward vintage (Abeja) has outdone (themselves). This is immediately appealing, sending a rush of black cherry and cassis fruit backed with darker notes of coffee, smoke and licorice. The flavors are dense and supple, and the wine combines grace and power, unfolding with additional layers of tar, green tea and smoky herb." Wine Enthusiast, 93 pts.
