2013 Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Aged in French oak, 30% new. Deep, saturated ruby. Wild, musky aromas of black raspberry, gunflint, spices and violet. Plush, tactile and sweet, offering surprising lift and definition to the flavors of dark raspberry, blackberry, smoked meat and violet face powder. Very expressive, fine-grained Syrah with subtle intensity and a lingering, ripely tannic finish. - Stephen Tanzer"

2016 Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(from the estate's Mill Creek Upland vineyard): Bright full ruby. Lively butt but subdued scents of cassis, blackberry, minerals, brown spices, violet and licorice; showing a distinctly dark side of Syrah. Intensely flavored, firm and juicy; not a particularly fleshy or pliant style but offers lovely inner-mouth violet lift and a dense weave to the flavors of dark berries and minerals. This serious Syrah boasts a firm spine of acids and tannins and finishes with sneaky persistence. Dry, laid-back and rather classic wine, in need of time in bottle to expand and gain in complexity. (14.7% alcohol) - Stephen Tanzer"

2019 Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2019 Syrah Walla Walla Valley smolders up with a dark and intense burst of crushed cloves and dried black cherries complicated by olive and balsamic tones. This is silky-smooth, nearly creamy in feel, with juicy acidity that enlivens its tart wild berry fruits. Sage and burnt orange linger throughout the long and only lightly structured finale. There’s no reason to wait, as the 2019 is holding nothing back. - Eric Guido "
