Review:

The 2010 is another strong offering from winemaker John Abbott. The best fruit of the vintage went into this wine: a 2010 Reserve was not produced. The list of vineyards reads like a who's who of Washington's best vineyards: old vine blocks of Dionysus and Bacchus Vineyards, Red Mountain's Hedges and Weinbau Vineyards, and the Abeja Estate vineyard, Heather Hill.

John Abbott made his reputation with Cabernet Sauvignon: it is his top-of-the-line wine. With the 2010 he shows that he keeps getting even better at his craft.

2009 Vintage

Wine Spectator 92 Points: A plush style, brimming with gorgeous plum and currant fruit framed with dark chocolate, smoky meat and spice flavors. Finishes with power and sleek balance. Drink now through 2017. H.S.

2008 Vintage

Being a fan of Abeja Cab means that the bar is set high - each vintage has to be as good, or better than the last. Such is the 2008 Abeja Cab, my favorite since the 2005 vintage. The pairing of fresh and rich Washington dark berries with Bordeaux-style leather, cedar, and warm earth totally rocks my big-red world. It's powerful and structured but tastes delicious right out of the bottle.

In addition to 90% Cab, winemaker John Abbott blended 7% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot (a first for Abeja Cab), and 1% Caberbet Franc. - Marcus

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

This stuff smells fantastic. Abeja Cabs are so elegant - you still get the heft and massiveness. Polished black fruit with a red fruit burst, nestled like a cherry cordial on the back of your tongue. The whole wine seems encased in a creaminess, its supple and silky texture flowing out of the glass until the dark chocolate punch pops on the finish.

Served with pan-seared beef tenderloin and carrot puree, it couldn't have been better. - Marcus

This is the varietal that we believe will increasingly be recognized as the icon varietal of Washington State and comprises the majority of our production. This Cabernet is stylish, elegant, and impeccably balanced. We accomplish this by meticulous viticultural management, utilization of a rare sorting system, gentle handling of the fruit and the wine, customized practices for every lot no matter how small, and carefully selected French oak. - the winery

We still have a small amount of the 2006 vintage Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon at the same price as the 2007. Please call us or email Marcus (Marcus@northwest-wine.com) to order.

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

I look at most Washington wines objectively. I look at Abeja as a fan. In some cases, that puts Abeja at a disadvantage, since they have to make a cab that I want to drink at home. The 2006 is it. Scents of wild berries and vanilla cream, and silky layers of all kinds of fruit. The finish is long and powerful with a distinct fresh blackberry streak. There's no need to cellar, but the 06 Cab has plenty of guts to age for several years. It won't last nearly that long at my house!
