Abacela makes Top 100 Wine of 2015 list!

Image
Our 2012 Fiesta Tempranillo made Great Northwest Wine's "Top 100 Wines" of 2015 list! Only three wines from the Umpqua Valley made this year's list.

Rating: Outstanding!
"Earl and Hilda Jones, honored earlier this year by the Oregon wine industry for their contributions, are also helping to make Tempranillo more approachable with this new, entry-level tier. This doesn’t offer the barrel aging and refinement of their others, but it’s easy to embrace with its dark black cherry, black licorice and milk chocolate tones. There’s a fair amount of grip to the fine-grained tannins, so crack the cap and serve this on the patio with grilled fare or paired with plate of Manchego cheese and chorizo."
