Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Alluring aromas of cherry-cola, pomegranate and subtle hints of cedar. Rich flavors of black plum, raspberry, and dark chocolate with a silky mouth-feel and a lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
While the Rutherford appellation is primarily known for producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, we have meticulously selected and cultivated clones of Petit Verdot and Malbec that are ideally suited to the Estate's terroir. The combination of Estate-grown Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon come together to make our 2013 Abela Vineyard Red Wine.
Production Notes
This is a rare opportunity to experience a limited release Napa Valley red blend crafted from Estate-grown fruit. Most vintners and wine critics consider the quality of the 2012 harvest to be the best in over a decade and 2013 proves to be not far behind. A warm Spring brought on early bud break. Consistent sunshine, moderate temperatures (between 80 ° and 90 °F) and the typical cool Napa evenings and morning fog throughout the growing season produced exceptional fruit with intense, bright berry flavors.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine can be enjoyed with a roasted venison loin, tender pork chops, or alongside a delicious vegetarian ratatouille.
Other Notes
59% Malbec, 40% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
