Abstract is the epitome of complexity through geographic diversification. The wine, like the label, is a collage of many different parts and pieces. We source fruit from multiple vineyards, in multiple appellations , throughout the state. This not only allows us to create a style but maintain consistency from year to year. The label is over 230 individual images collected over many years, assembled over a four-week period.
The wine, like the label, starts with over 200 pieces, whittled down over the course of a few months during multiple marathon tastings—not all of which made the blend. Resulting is a wine representative of the Golden State.
Expansive aromas of ripe red fruits—raspberries, bing cherries and strawberries—and a touch of boysen- and huckleberries open the nose. The aromas continue onto the palate with added layers of charred meat, rhubarb, thyme, surrounding a dark fruit core.
Smooth, enveloping and lasting, the wine finishes with a pleasing maraschino cherry note.
