This California Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits rich, slightly smoky aromas of cherries, boysenberries and chocolate. A minimum of eight months aging in French and American oak barrels softened the wine and imparted subtle notes of vanilla and spice.

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.

Rubingranat. Betörendes Bouquet nach reifen Pflaumen, roten Rosen und Brombeermarmelade in der süsslichen Nase, dahinter Milchschokolade, Hagebuttentee und leicher Carameltouch. Samtige Textur, im fruchtig-saftigen Gaumen, Backpflaumen sowie Holundergelee und Kirschtabak im fülligen Finale. Überzeugender Cabernet für viele Gelegenheiten.

Ein fruchtiger, ausgewogener und nachhaltiger Rotwein. Rubinrot. Dezentes Bouquet. Die Beerenfrüchte (Heidelbeere, Himbeere) dominieren leicht, vor etwas Steinobst und Dörrfrucht (Dörrpflaume). Im Gaumen leicht süsslicher Antrunk. Der Gerbstoff zeigt noch ganz leicht adstringierende Wirkung. Insgesamt aber recht weich, mittelfüllig und harmonisch. Im Rückgeruch wieder Frucht und leichte Röstaromatik (Rauch). Mittellanger Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

Avalon Napa Cabernet Our wine has a deep rich ruby color that is clear and bright. Smell for aromas of concentrated black cherry, toasty oak, caramel and cassis. The small addition of Cabernet Franc and Merlot lends additional plum, cherry tobacco, and blueberry nuances to the wine. Oak aging provides notes of nutmeg and cedar box while giving breadth and depth on the palate. The wine explodes with fruit in the mouth yet is balanced by the oak and has a nice lingering finish. 851718000024
