2017 TORCIA Abela Cabernet Sauvignon
The glass presents intertwining aromatics of crushed violets, wild berries and dried herbs. Abela is wrapped in a delicately perfumed, feminine elegance that has been a defining attribute from its inception.
The wine unfolds on the palate in waves of dark berry, cocoa, anise, sweet oak and finely structured, integrated tannins. The overriding impressions are those of finesse, balance, approachability and subtle power. The fine liquorice finish lingers on the palate, persuading you for more.
