Abeja's main production is centered upon their three Cabernets, this one sourced from throughout the Columbia Valley. It plays out broadly across the palate, with flavors of strawberry and raspberry fruit, aged in 60% new French oak. The pretty toast is further enhanced with a streak of minerality. Drink now–2019.
