Avalon Cab 2007
at $8.99 there are better Cabernets but not bad. It was better the second day.
Conducted a blind tasting last night with Avalon California 2007 against three similarly-priced 2007 Cabernet Sauvignons, also from California. This bottle was the hands-down winner capturing four of seven first-place votes. Irony and Liberty School finished a close 2nd and 3rd, with Dominican Oaks a distant fourth. Avalon has a gorgeous finish with hints of nutmeg on the nose. Perfect wine for any pasta with a red sauce, pork loin, etc. Easily could be mistaken for a $20-$25 bottle of Cab. Save me a case please!
External Reviews for Avalon Cab
Purpur-Granat. Betörendes Bouquet nach Pflaumenkompott, roten Rosen und reifen Brombeeren in der süsslichen Nase, dahinter Milchschokolade und Karmell. Samtige Textur, im fruchtig-saftigen Gaumen, Backpflaumen sowie Holundergelee und Kirschtabak im fülligen Finale.
