    Winemaker Notes

    This 2009 vintage is the eighth release of this fruit forward, less tannic and earlier maturing Tempranillo, which was delicious upon bottling. The fruit sources included Abacela's West Slope block. The beautiful aromatics, focused red fruit flavors, and seamless finish will continue to improve over the next four to six years.

    For years we, Earl and Hilda Jones, have pursued our passion for fine Spanish wine made from the Tempranillo grape. Our goal is to produce fine wine from that grape in America.

    Thus, the "Abacela" idea was to find in America a similar climate to that of the finest Tempranillo growing areas in Spain. The "marginal" climate sought was hot enough to ripen the fruit but not so hot that it cooked out the essence of the grape. A climate which provided dry summers and cool but wet winters, relatively free of severe freezes to minimize potential cold injury to the vines.

    Searches through tomes of wine books, climate records, and maps led us to the West Coast. The search ended in the Umpqua Valley in Southern Oregon, 11 miles southwest of Roseburg Oregon. Here, the vineyards bask by day in the hot summer sun and are cooled at night by Pacific Ocean breezes. The long growing season allows the fruit to ripen slowly and fully. Our Abacela idea, now a working winery, was christened Abacela, utilizing an old Castilian word that means "to plant grapevines."
