Avalon California Red Blend 2015
Ranked the #3 Red Wine in our Sept. 23, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
2015 marked another stellar vintage in California. A warm summer combined with well-reported drought conditions led to very early harvest with light, concentrated yields with exceptional quality. Red varietals show firm tannins, dense black fruit character and deep color.
Big and smooth, this well-polished wine seems to melt on the palate, releasing lush cherry, berry and milk chocolate flavors. It's soft in terms of acidity and low in tannins. It's made from 54% Zinfandel blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat and Petite Sirah.
