On the nose you get dark fruit like blackberries, baking spices and vanilla. The palate is flavor-packed ripe blackberries, toasted baking spices with a long, commanding finish.

Awards: Silver from Tastings.com International Wine Competition

What’s in a name? We source our grapes from Abba Vineyard. The Abba family has been growing grapes for going on 4 generations. Each year, we take the 70’s musical group, ABBA, and name the wine after an ABBA song. In 2016, our daughter, Melissa, got married. Her father and future husband, Lewis, took dance lessons for a year in order to dance with her on her wedding day.

    Review from Beverage Testing Institute
    Violet color. Aromas of cooked fruit, fruitcake, marzipan, and matcha with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and a warming, stimulating, medium-length wet stone and black olive finish with moderate oak flavor. A port-like Syrah that will be divine with blue cheeses and roast pork with fruits.
