Always a favorite! The 2008 Abbots Table is very reflective of the beautiful long growing season in Washington during 2008. With long warm days and cooler evenings, the fruit developed fabulous aromatics and deep rich flavors. The 2008 Abbot's Table shows darker fruit notes than the previous two vintages. This very balanced and smooth Abbot's Table has the signature velvety mouth feel with enough structure to support generous ripe flavors of sweet red and black fruit, plums, and dark cherries. Every varietal works in harmony to create this gorgeously layered wine.

Huge fruit on this one--packed with blackberry and cherry notes, and a very soft finish. Good table wine--but beware of the big fruit. Had it with Rendang (indonesian spicy beef stew) and it was pretty good, thanks to that heavy load of fruitiness. Lacks complexity that most wines in this price range offer.
