91pointsAbacela 2015 Malbec (Umpqua Valley)

Abacela's reds are dark, bold and tannic, but the estate-grown fruit is up to the challenge of the extended barrel aging. Bourbon tea aromas introduce this pure Malbec, which does a vertical dive into deep black cherry and cassis fruit. A spine of iron and finishing touches of licorice and espresso contribute to a powerful, tannic finish. Paul Gregutt
