Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
The nose leads off with plum, bright blackberry, and dark bing cherries. A touch of dried blueberry rounds out the fruit profile. Floral notes and cocoa, with nuances of cedar and spice, are sprinkled throughout. All of these characters follow through on the palate and, with a pleasant minerality and continuity, weave a tapestry of complexity and youthful exuberance.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon wafts up from the glass with a dusty yet understated mix of crushed violets, lavender and black cherries complemented by exotic spice. It's silky-smooth, displaying wonderful finesse, with a blend of blueberry and blackberry fruits motivated by brisk acidity. This tapers off long and staining to the senses, leaving a primary concentration of fruit and a buzz of residual acidity that maintains fabulous freshness.
