    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Syrah.

    Exhibits aromas of raspberry, blackberry, mint and black cherries. Vanilla and short bread cookie notes from oak aging bring balance and frame the ripe berry flavors. Napa Valley characteristics show through with strawberries, red raspberries and a faint root beer note with quintessential Oakville dark cherries. The tannins are fine and chalky.

    Critical Acclaim:

    As one might expect, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (which is blended with Syrah and Merlot) is a slightly deeper wine displaying a more saturated ruby/purple color in addition to sweet creme de cassis, smoked herb, loamy soil, cedar, and spice characteristics. It should drink well for 3-4 years. I enjoyed Avalon’s 2006 efforts, and in 2007 (a brilliant vintage throughout California for nearly every varietal) they have again turned in strong performances.

    I think this is one of the best Napa designated Cabernet at this price. Pairs well with all kinds of food.

    Love this wine! Complex and fruity, it goes well with any food (or just by itself). Makes your mouth feel soft and velvety as you sip.

    We love this wine. Also love the label with the four hearts. Rich fruit, great oak. Not bitter at all. Tastes like many Napa Cabs we like for a lot less $$$.

    I live in the Napa Valley and love to be able to afford a really tasty red. This is the choice of both my husband and me. This is frequently our selection when entertaining.
