Villa Creek 2018 Avenger
This wine offers purity, power, and precision. The vivid ruby/purple color catches your eye as you pour it into your glass. Aromas of black fruits, smoked meats, earth and spice let you know you are in for a ride. The palate is insane; mouth filling and rich while not being over the top. It really hits the sweet spot of fruit and complexity. The tannins are fine and the length goes on for miles. On day one it was delish but day two took it to another level proving it will go the long haul and give pleasure for years to come.
Composition: 70% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 5% Petite Sirah, 3% Carignan, 2% Mourvedre
