Tasty, but with noticeable holes. Not worth the price.

Consistent with the first lot of 5 bottles I've tasted in the past few months, this wine was bright ruby in color and showed black cherry, baking spices and clove on the nose. The mouth feel brought juicy acidity along with tart cranberry and wet granite. The finish was medium in length with good lift and the fruit, tannins and minerality all coming together nicely.

Purchased for $14.99US from winestillsoldout.com, this is an outstanding qpr. It easily drinks like a $30+ bottle. I liked this so much I jumped on an offer from WTSO to buy another 4 bottles. Kudos to WTSO for offering this at a great price.

Drinking in a great place. The secondary notes have begun taking over with lychee, petrichor, peach, and pear flavors. Palate is sweet but refined with good balance. Thought this was drinking in a great place.

OMG. Can't believe I laid this down. NFG! longshadows pretends to be a top WA producer, but there wine just doesn't lay-down to stand any scrutiny. Overly tannic when young. FoMunda Cheese after a little aging.

Unbalance, thin and heavy in the heat category. Maybe this is an off bottle but I wasn't really impressed before. Cooked fruity notes, but no real depth, no decent texture and the lower acidic/ABV imbalance makes me wish i didn't by this stuff at any price. Maybe its totally shit down. I'll hold it for another year, then if still not good I'll cook with it or use it for family who gulp the wine in about 2 seconds. Yes I have some of those. Some might add Sprite or ice cubes too.

Slightly metallic nose and taste, dark fruit and leather, but something about this didn't quite work for me, including some sourness that was off-putting.

Tasted at Vino wine tasting (Hollywood,Florida). This wine had a deep purple color and a very tight nose. After 30 minutes in the glass, there was still very little fruit, and no florals. It's taste was also austere, with dark tart fruit and lots of musty earth. I really tried to like this wine, because I usually enjoy Loire Cab Franc, but I could find very little to go with. I thought that maybe it was a bad bottle, but it was poured by it's distributer, as part of a tasting, and she sampled it as well. Even after the tasting was over, I tried another pour from a bottle that was opened for more than an hour. The distributer's write-up noted tastes of damson plums. When I Googled this plum, it reported that this fruit was "astringent", so maybe this is what the wine is supposed to taste like. I read other favorable tasting notes, so I must be missing something.

2010 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

Decanted 3+ hours and had with grilled steak, potatoes and veggies. I like this Cab style - medium-bodied, restrained, elegant - but it's still too young to drink. Tannins and acidity wobbled the structure all over the place. Nothing is integrated and the fruit is completely subdued. Even the nose was hard to pin down. Given the pedigree of this winery, along with a promising core, I'd say it has promise but lay it down until at least 2016.

    6/20/2013 7:42:00 AM - Am not understanding why it was scored, since you admit to infanticide :-)

    I like Abeja cabs with 8-10 years of age. Anything less (to me) is a waste of potential.

Nearly four hour decant to get anything on the nose. Black fruits begrudgingly emerged but so did the alcohol. Supple texture, very drinkable, long finish, uninteresting. My first shipment is not off to a great start. $45?, really. Makes Januik @ 30 look good.

  • Comment posted by jlbwendt:

    3/27/2013 6:59:00 AM - I find Abeja cabs show best with 8-10 years of age. Had both a 2002 and a 2003 in the last couple weeks that were integrated and balanced.

Very anonyme, like the name suggests.. Incredibly boring smell, completely closed down and very tight even after decanting 2 hours - Taste is a little lighter than you'd expect from a chateauneuf, but still burns with it's alcohol. Parker 96 pts!!??

Dark pale ruby. Initially a mix of strong mint and oak on the nose. After some aeration, the nose calmed down but still displayed a strong oak funk with chocolate and cherry overtones. After some more time, the funk lent itself to more appealing herbs and flowers. There must be some whole cluster here. Rich, supple and spicy on the palate with the flavors mirroring the aromas. Decent finish. Relatively solid.
