Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.1%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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.

24% Zinfandel, 22% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 10% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Blaufrankish, 4% Malbec

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.
