2004 Abbinare : Washington State
The linking of vineyards and varietals from around the state is captured in our blend called Abbinare… Italian for “link together.” This is a Merlot heavy Bordeaux style blend that is capturing a growing number of wine lovers with it’s old world character. Not a timid wine, it’s less fruit forward than our Miscela blend and more complex and earthy with a floral perfume that will hold your attention for an evening of enjoyment.
