“Abondante,” which translates as “abundant,” is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Grenache and Merlot. Bright and yes, generous, it's packed with the flavors of just-picked raspberries. It could pass for a young vine Zin, but whatever you call it this is really a delicious bottle of fruit-powered red wine meant for immediate enjoyment.
