Wine of the Moment, 2007 Sineann Abondante

With his winery located in the Yamhill Carlton district of Oregon, Sineann winemaker Peter Rosback takes advantage of his proximity to Washington State vineyards by producing both Oregon and Washington wines. He sources his fruit from some of the best vineyards in the region; Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley and the Hood River Valley, Cabernet, Merlot and Zinfandel from the Columbia Valley, Gewurztraminer from the Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge.

Peter is known for being a meticulous winemaker. Only the best fruit is selected then hand sorted, delicately destemmed, punched down by hand, gently pressed and gravity racked. The wines are aged in new and one year old French oak.

We've been in love with his whites for awhile now with the Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer holding a regular spot on our shelves. Lately I've had many requests for Peter's red wines, so be on the look out for more of the amazing, small production wines from the Pacific Northwest!

The Abondante is a gorgeous blend of Cabernet, Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel and Merlot. The nose is filled with plums and cassis, with cedar and smoke...medium in body, with dark and black fruits and chocolate notes and a luxurious mouthfeel, a great addition to our wine bar menu!

Available at the bar only, $11/glass.
