Abacela 2013 Barrel Select Red (Umpqua Valley)

Abacela makes a fortified wine from Portuguese grapes, but this is a dry, varietal expression of one of the most obscure. Bone-dry, it's got tongue-scraping tannins that taste of black tea. It offers dried raspberries, vanilla and cocoa elements, and the overall complexity is impressive. This seems built for a thick steak. Paul Gregutt
