Abbot's Table 2016 is smoking! The perfect summer barbeque wine, equal parts rich and spicy, filled with lip-smacking raspberry and cherry flavors. 47% Sangiovese, 22% Zinfandel, 19% Blaufrankish, 12% Malbec.
"Abbot's Table is a wine for all occasions and all people" says Owen Roe proprietor David O'Reilly.
Abbot's Table is O'Reilly's tribute to his memories of childhood. Born and raised in Ireland, O'Reilly's family often served wine at the dinner table, and he fondly remembers a red wine blend that was rich, warm, silky, smooth and flavorful.
Some red table wines are made from barrels that didn't quite fit into the premium wines. The Abbot's Table is intentional, from vineyard to bottle.
David stopped making two very successful wines, his Zinfandel and Sangiovese, so he could use their grapes for Abbots. The Abbot's Table shows Owen Roe's world class complexity and depth of flavor at an "everyday wine" price.
Winemaker David O'Reilly: "One word - 'uncompromising'- only the best grapes, make less wine if need be, but never a grape that is less than the highest quality. I do not compromise. And that's why Abbot's Table is so good."
