Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Elegant flavors of black cherry, mulberry, all spice and expressive dried herb notes.
Vineyard Notes
While the Rutherford appellation is celebrated for producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, we have meticulously selected and cultivated clones of Petite Verdot, Malbec and Merlot that are ideally suited to the Estate’s terroir. The combination of these varietals join our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon to create an elegant and distinctive red blend.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair our Abela Vineyard Red Wine with a marinated skirt steak, aged medium-dried cheeses, or a flourless chocolate cake.
Production
Our Abela Red Wine represents a unique opportunity to experience a limited release Napa Valley red blend that is crafted from Estate-grown fruit. The winter of 2013-2014 was one of the driest in California’s history with Napa Valley receiving only half of its average rainfall. But, with respect to grape quality, there was good news: heavy rains in February and early March gave the vines emerging from dormancy a rejuvenating boost. Furthermore, the overall dry season resulted in smaller berry size with concentrated characteristics that added depth to the fruit’s inherent flavors.
Other Notes
40% Petit Verdot, 35% Malbec, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot
