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.
Avalon BLEND is made with California’s most exciting red varietals:
- Zinfandel: Provides a plush and juicy base of ripe blackberry and spicy black pepper notes.
- Cabernet Sauvignon: Adds black cherry fruit and lush tannins which provides structure to the wine.
- Tannat: Lends a bright red cherry top note complementing the wine’s dark fruit.
- Petite Sirah: Deep and dark in color, Petite Sirah also contributes a dose of ripe blueberry and boysenberry fruit.
