Avalon

Our 2010 vintage shows amazing inky, ruby/brick color, an indicator of the depth of this wine. Avalon's Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromas of juicy plums, boysenberries and earthy minerality. Caramel, molasses and vanilla notes from oak aging balance and frame the fruit flavors. Oak aging additionally adds weight on the palate. Napa flavors show through with red raspberries and quintessential dark cherries. The tannins are sandy and fine. This spacious Cabernet benefits from decanting to bring out its rich flavors and expansive palette. Or simply enjoy it as it "opens up" in your glass as you linger over dinner and conversation.

Wine Advocate

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 Napa (28,000 cases produced) is more expensive, but no better than the California cuvee. It offers notes of black currants, licorice, cedar wood and spice. Drink it over the next several years.

Score: 87. —Robert Parker, October 2012.
