Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012
External Reviews for Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Trim and tight, offering chewy, cedar-laced currant and red berry flavors, with touches of tobacco and loamy earth. Ends with a cleansing finish. Drink now through 2023. 60,000 cases made.
The more serious from Avalon is the 60,000-case cuvée of 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Also 100% varietal, it was aged 16 months in French and American oak. It exhibits a dark ruby/plum color along with notes of sweet blackcurrants and plums intermixed with forest floor, licorice and subtle roasted herbs. Fleshy, round and seductive, it will drink well for 2–3 years.
