30 vintages in one bottle
Abacus, ZD Wines’ legendary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, is a multi-vintage blend that artfully expresses the depth and complexity of a well-aged wine, infused with a touch of forward fruit and the intensity of a younger wine. It is defined by ZD Wines’ Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, which has been produced every year since 1992. The wine is aged for three years in the barrel which allows access to the young reserve wines as a blending component to Abacus. Hence, there is always a component of young, fruit forward wine available to infuse into the ever-developing Abacus solera. The current bottling of Abacus XXIV is a masterful blend of 30 vintages of ZD’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (1992-2021)
ZD Wines, National Sales Mgr., John E. Buckey, CSW, has spent his entire career in the wine business, as a restauranteur, retailer, distributor and winery supplier. Wine has always been his passion and he is very proud to work for the deLeuze family at ZD Wines, a relationship started through the Hanzell Pinot Noir Clone. While John was traveling around the US and speaking for Hanzell Vineyards, he often found himself speaking of ZD Founder's Reserve Pinot Noir, which is wholly produced from the Hanzell Clone, planted in the deLeuze Family's Carneros Estate. Representing ZD Wines is a natural fit for John, as the winery and family are based on passion, high quality, hard work and integrity.
