Good red-ruby. More precise and alive on the nose than Abeja's other 2017 Cabernet, offering aromas of currant, leather, licorice, dark chocolate, loam and tobacco leaf; conveys a strong impression of place. Suave and fine-grained on entry, then sweet, silky and intense in the middle palate, with plum, currant and milk chocolate flavors sharing the ripeness of the Walla Walla Cabernet but showing more refinement and lift. Wonderfully silky and suave, with excellent concentration, texture and weight. The slowly mounting, palate-saturating back end features well-buffered, building tannins. Much firmer than the Columbia Valley Cabernet but without any rough edges.

Floating effortlessly out of the glass, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Heather Hill offers elegant, dark fruit tones that melt perfectly with seductive baking spices and elements of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate expresses a smooth and velvety texture that proudly shows its elegant nature with impeccable balance, succulent acidity and fine-grained tannins. The wine summersaults to an elongated finish showing power, precision and finesse. The wine rested in French oak for just under two years. It's crushingly good, and the only problem is trying to keep my hands off it. Put this in the cellar and forget about it for a couple of years and reward your future self with a beautiful bottle of wine. Only 6,384 bottles were filled.

A flavorful red with aromas of ripe plum, chocolate and praline. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Decadent layers of ripe fruit, chocolate and toasty oak. Drink or hold.

The aromas of this 100% varietal bring notes of cherry cordial, coffee, blackberry, anise, dried orange rind and spice. The palate is flavorful and soft. The concentration wavers a bit in the middle initially but fleshes out over time.
Winery
An intriguing bouquet of strawberry, neroli and almond greet the nose. The opening is subtle but quickly crescendos to a full mid palate, pushing towards a long and satisfying finish. Structured and well rounded, flavors of ripe pomegranate and olive cumulate with juniper and sage, building in both nuance and intensity as the wine opens.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Since their conception in 18th century France, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes have flourished across the Old and New Worlds and have changed the way we think about red wine forever. Their sharp and astringent nature has a wonderful ability to mellow and round with age, and when helped by being blended with Merlot and Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc varietals – as is done in Bordeaux and elsewhere – the results can be truly remarkable. What is most special about Cabernet Sauvignon grapes is the fact that they have a true affinity for oak, and when aged in barrels made of this fragrant wood, the wine which comes out of them a few years later holds an amazing array of flavors and aromas, making Cabernet Sauvignon based wines some of the most memorable in the world. Single variety bottles from the New World made from this grape are also increasing in popularity, as the strong flavors and full-bodied nature of these wines is a great match for many global cuisines.

Region: Washington State

Washington is the second largest wine producing region in the United States, after California, with over forty thousand acres currently under vine, and over six hundred wineries currently operating there. Since the first wineries were established there in 1825, Washington has produced a wide range of wines, made mostly with classic Old World grape varietals. Indeed, their Merlot and Chardonnay wines were immensely popular over the past few decades, and helped establish this state as a serious producer in regards to New World fine wines. The dry and arid eastern side of the country is heavily irrigated, and holds over ninety-nine percent of the state's wineries, each producing the state's characteristic bright, fruit-forward red wines and dry, crisp acidic white wines, both of which are increasing in popularity around the world.

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.

Appellation: Walla Walla

Washington State is a fascinating wine region, and one which typifies the kind of quality and innovation currently found in the United States' wine scene, with widespread utilization of modern and traditional wine making methods, resulting in magnificent wines of character and distinction. Within Washington State, we find the beautiful sub-region of Walla Walla, a relatively small area typified by rolling hillsides and arid, dry soils. Walla Walla benefits enormously from the hot and dry climate it receives, which allows the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varietal grapes which grow there to reach full ripeness each year, and express all of their wonderful flavors and aromas. Due to a very successful few decades, the number of wineries in Walla Walla has increased rapidly, meaning that more and more different and quality wines are now coming out of this unique and fascinating place.
