90pointsAbacela NV Vintner's Blend #18 Red (Umpqua Valley)

Editors' Choice

This is a sort of ad hoc field blend, composed of estate-grown fruit that didn't find its way into any of the many single varietal blends. Ten different grapes are in the mix, but more than half, unsurprisingly, is Tempranillo. It blends seamlessly, a potpourri of black fruits, cacao and graphite, with a whiff of cigar box. At this price it's worth loading up by the case. Paul Gregutt
