2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 6L

The 2008 vintage of Cabernet is a delicious wine that reflects the classic, elegantly powerful Abeja style. This wine displays a lovely balance bright red and blue fruit. The lingering mouth feel of a Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon is matched by captivating, old-world Bordeaux characteristics of saddle leather, cedar, and tar. The nose is fruitful and forward upon opening the bottle. Dense, dark, layers of plums, boysenberries, and blackberries are woven with a slight suggestion of soy. The mouth is rich and finishes with fine-grained, polished tannins. The 2008 Columbia Valley is also the first Cabernet Sauvignon we released with a bit of Petit Verdot in the blend, which really contributes to the fruit and structure in this wine.
