Review:

The 2011 blend consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Zinfandel. Dark red fruit flavors with a touch of peppercorn. The tannins are well integrated and the acidity is clean and bright. An excellent value!

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

2008 Wine Spectator - 92 points - Lithe, polished and distinctive for its tightly wound tobacco-accented blackberry and plum flavors, hinting at black olive as the finish lingers nicely. Has refinement and depth. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel. Best from 2012 through 2017. 660 cases made. - H.S.

Abondante is one of Sineann's "value red" blends, a steal every year, this one combines a real range of varietals and Peter's knack for creating intense reds. Best value.

A blend of wines made from grapes grown by Lonnie Wright in the Columbia Valley near The Dalles, OR. It is made up of Syrah, Merlot, Grenache, Zinfandel and Cabernet.

Peter says: "Tastes more like a $40 wine than a $24 wine."

"With this wine we honor a few things. Abondante is Italian for “generous”, generosity being something we try to build into all our wines. It also honors our “A” team of workers, winelovers all, who help make this stuff happen in the winery."

"Finally, it honors our good friend, Dante, man of many talents, who is our chef through the harvest season and keeps us very well fed."

"The wine is a blend of grapes grown by Lonnie Wright in the lower Columbia Valley. There is a little Syrah and from McDermott’s Scorched Earth Vineyard (which sits on a grand bend of the Columbia River), Merlot from the Hillside Vineyard, Cabernet from the Hillside Vineyard and Zinfandel from the Pines. How could the wine not be good?"

"Lonnie has clearly demonstrated his command of grape growing. The fruit was ripe and clean: high sugar, great acidity. This baby is a probably the best value we put out."
