Planted at the "deep end" of Anderson Valley, near Navarro, CA, this vineyard produces a wine that expresses elegant notes of cherry and cola.

Vintage Notes: 

2018 was a very cool growing season that allowed us to leisurely pick grapes over a long period of time. This cool weather allowed us to have many different wines picked at various levels of ripeness and flavor development, while maintaining ideal sugar levels. This gave us a diverse group of wines to blend from at our blending session.

Vineyard Notes: 

The Abel Vineyard sits near the town of Navarro in what’s also referred to as the “deep-end” of Anderson Valley. This wine has the reputation of being one of our most expressive upon release.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas: Raspberry, Santa Rosa plum, citrus peel

Palate: Consistent with aromas of raspberry, ripe, fresh blueberry, clove, baking spice
