"Abbot's Table" 2014

Owen Roe

Abbot’s Table honors the most fundamental form of hospitality through the ages -the meal. The abbot’s table traditionally provides an opportunity for fellowship with guests over food and wine. This wine, with its unique varietal diversity, is rich in red fruit notes, with balanced flavors and acidity, exuding charm and texture. It pairs beautifully with many flavors and feasts. The grapes for this wine come from our estate vineyards as well as vineyards farmed by other dedicated families in beautiful eastern Washington State.

Reviews

  • "90 points. Zinfandel (46%) takes the lead on this blend, with the rest Sangiovese, Blaufrankisch and Malbec. Aromas of jammy red fruit and herb lead to ripe, expressive fruit flavors. It brings a lot of appeal and has a lovely sense of balance." (Wine Enthusiast)
  • "89 points. Good full red. Dark berries, black pepper and licorice aromas are lifted by a violet topnote. Very smooth and sweet but juicy as well, showing lovely peppery, spicy verve to the black fruit flavors. In a distinctly brisk style: O'Reilly picks this fruit at very reasonable sugars--as low as 22.5 degrees Brix for the Malbec component. An attractive, creamy wine with sappy freshness, this early-released "cash-flow blend" relies as much on its acidity as on its tannins for structure. Finishes with good persistence." (vinous)
