Great memories today...and new ones being forged. Remember the early vintages of Abeja Cab? I do, because they were some of my favorite wines of my first years at Avalon. The winemaker responsible: John Abbott.
John left Abeja to found Devona, a super-exciting new project from both sides of the Columbia Gorge (Oregon and Washington). I'm fully expecting these wines to become "mailing list only" within a year or two, but let's load up while we can!

Of course, of course John is making spectacular Cab, but somehow I'm still surprised at how great it is, especially for the price. Rich Cabernet goodness, expertly weaving together blackberry with chocolate-covered dark cherries. The pipe tobacco accents add a comforting touch. Super-solid delicious Cab, I expect this is going to become a staple Cab for us and for you.
$40.45 in any 12 bottled or Build a Case order ($44.95 regular)
And maybe you remember the best vintages of Abeja Chardonnay?
John's made a similar Chardonnay balancing two distinct sides/vineyards in Washington: Celilo in the western Columbia Gorge and Gamache in Columbia Valley. We loved the minerals dancing from the glass, with a great body of rich summer peach and pear. Beautifully crafted and balanced.
