Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon contains layers of complexity that really show themselves after a little time in the glass. Initially, it is deep and mysterious and then opens to reveal fragrances of plum, dark raspberry, and sweet vanilla. Cocoa and lightly roasted coffee mingle with hints of spice and cedar. A long finish is generous and engaging. It has an impeccable balance of integrated tannin, acidity, and alcohol that perfectly accompanies the meal and provides for excellent longevity in the cellar.
My Notes:

About Abeja:

Spanish for bee, our name is pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha" We chose this name for its simple beauty and its reminder if times past when farming implied a respect for the environment and a close connection to the earth. It is our belief that each day, we can make a difference in the quality of our care for the land, and no matter how small, any difference we make is worthwile. We create our wines and recieve our guests under the same philosophy.

Abeja is located on a century-old farmstead in the breathtaking foothills of the Blue Mountains, four miles east of Walla Walla Washington. Once seriously dilapidated, all of the original farm buildings have been carefully restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity. Creative use of salvaged materials adds interest and sets the stage for renewed purpose in these old buildings, which now house our winery and our inn guests.
