WE 93 Pts.
This Bordeaux-style blend, is the winery’s best in years. It shows the soft tannins & herbal quality of AVV Cabs yet is rich enough in blackberry currant & oak to satisfy. Its tannin structure feels elegant with layers of complexity.
Intense aromas of wild blueberry, ripe cherry, and cassis with a touch of cedar and earth. The mouth is layered with bright flavors of red currants, plum jam, and sweet vanilla. Ripe tannins fill the palate and provide an elegant finish of dried red fruit
