Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon California 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Grapes from Lodi, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara and Monterey. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, aged in French oak for approximately 9 months. Drinks of cherries, black currants and boysenberry jam with herbal spice. A splash of Merlot and Zinfandel bumps up the fruit flavors and keeps it easy drinking. Medium bodied with surprising richness" -Winery

The nose shows cherry pie, rhubarb, boysenberry jam, and a hint of rosemary. French oak adds a touch of vanilla and nutmeg. The wine drinks of juicy blue and black fruit flavors with subtle oak to round and balance the wine.

The 2010 vintage shows a big red ruby color. Aromas of red and black cherries and fleshy plums fill the glass. Oak aging adds a touch of vanilla and pie crust while also adding mouth feel and texture to the wine. The wine drinks of cherry tart, raspberries and boysenberry jam. Alex notes that this vintage has 'good freshness' and 'good acid'. The wine shows integrated tannins with mid-palate grip and a silky berry finish. In a nutshell, it's a juicy fruit forward wine with a great finish.
