2008 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon:
Blended with 7% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc, and absent the fruit of Red Mountain Vineyard sourced from the same locations as its chronological successor, the Abeja 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, like the 2009, does not betray its 60% new wood in any obvious way. The same cassis and juniper are here accented with bitter huckleberry, cedar, and humus; and the overall impression is sappier and even more persistent. This should perform handsomely for at least another half dozen years. Drink 2012-2018.

ABEJA Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 200*:
Distinctly savory, with a meaty, herbal character to the modest berry and spice flavors, riding through the finish against refined tannins. Drink now through 2015. 2,482 cases made.

Abeja 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA)):
This is labeled as Cabernet but is a Bordeaux-style blend that includes small percentages of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. At the moment the wine is not especially expressive. There are hints of peppery herb in the nose, lightly ripe red fruits, and a pleasing, buttery finish.

Description
Winery Notes:

This is the varietal that we believe will increasingly be recognized as the icon varietal of Washington State and comprises the majority of our production. This Cabernet is stylish, elegant, and impeccably balanced. We accomplish this by meticulous viticultural management, utilization of a rare sorting system, gentle handling of the fruit and the wine, customized practices for every lot no matter how small, and carefully selected French oak.
