2013 Abreu, Capella

A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cappella presents an exotic, beguiling mélange of lavender, smoke, violets, mint and spices. Darker and less immediate than the 2012 tasted alongside it, the 2013 is crystalline in its purity and sense of translucency. This is one of the most finessed, understated wines I have tasted from Abreu. All the elements are in the right place.
