Avenger, 2014, 750 ml

80% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache

"The 2014 Avenger was one of my favorite barrels samples from Cris. It reveals smokin' notes of cassis, blackberry, ground herbs, pepper and crushed flowers to go with a full-bodied, ultra-pure, fine and elegant feel on the palate. Its tannin quality is superb and while I'm sure it will drink nicely on release, it will also age."

Avenger is always our Syrah focused blend that can be relied upon to provide that rich, jammy red wine experience. This year’s Avenger brings Syrah from a new vineyard into the mix. We were turned on to G2 Vineyard by our friend Justin Smith of Saxum. G2 sits a mile  southeast of James Berry Vineyard and is also in the Willow Creek District of west Paso Robles.  The new owners have re-purposed this property from a larger production vineyard to a low yield farm of high quality Rhone varietals. Seductive aromatics of grilled jamón wrapped plums are enhanced by black berry and espresso notes.  A super sexy palate reveals boysenberry pie, chamborde, roasted meats, and spice all framed by gorgeous supple tannins.  This wine is ready to rumble though will cellar with the best of them.
