Recent press has proclaimed Abacela's 2010 and 2011 Albarinos as standout domestic Albarinos and at $18 retail, it is also America's best value too!

Bill St. John, Chicago Tribune:  "2010 Abacela Albarino, Umpqua Valley, Oregon: My favorite USA albarino 'cause you wouldn't know it wasn't Galician; gobs of scents and tastes of ripe Bosc pear, citrus, green apple and mineral; the new vintage, the 2011, is equal in savor, just fresher."

Recently on Forbes.com our wines were highlighted by Katie Kelly Bell in "Great Wines from Southern Oregon." Those mentioned were Abacela's gold medal 2007 Tempranillo Reserve, 2005 Paramour and the 2011 Albariño which Bell said was "...one of the best Albariños I've ever tasted." The time to buy is now!

New Abacela review from Oregon Wine Geeks

This is the top of the line Tempranillo from Abacela in the Umpqua Valley.  This is only their third release of a reserve.  The nose is very expressive and quite large consisting of blackberry, leather, lavender, graphite and cedar sawdust.  The mouth feel is full with large fruit of black currant with layers of acid, vanilla.  The tannin on the finish is firm and numbing with length and character.  A wonderful Tempranillo from Southern Oregon.  We need more of these.

2007 Reserve Tempranillo

Score: 93
Cost: $ 45
