Nota Bene Cellars: With six vintages released and 11 of those wines scoring 90 or better by major publications, Nota Bene is very happy with their success in the Washington wine industry. Here’s an example of some of the press: The Wine Advocate, November 2009 “The 2006 Abbinare is a blend of 61% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Malbec. It spent 21 months in predominantly seasoned French oak. Its aromatic array includes cigar box, violets, red currents, and black cherry leading to a spicy, silky-textured wine with excellent grip and a lengthy, pure finish. This pleasure-bent effort has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will be at its best from 2011 to 2018”. — Dr. Jay Miller.
