2013 AVENGER, MAGNUM

80% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache

Avenger, our Syrah based blend, is the wine that launched the brand some 14 years ago. One of the hallmarks of Avenger is it’s plush Paso Robles Syrah foundation. The 2013 vintage is an exciting departure from the norm. We enhanced this year’s blend with a bit of cooler climate Syrah from Bassetti Vineyard. The resultant wine showcases all the richness of Luna Matta and James Berry Vineyard with a hint of cool climate aromatics. Denner Vineyard’s Mourvèdre contributes earth and salinity and the Denner Grenache, the bing cherry nose and brightness. Sexy aromatics of roasted meats and sweet cherries transcends to an explosive mouth feel that is rich with notes of berry pie with a spiced crust, black pepper, cardamon, and a sweet-savory pan sauce. Finishes forever with white pepper spice and nori. If you must drink it now, give it a good swirl or decant to open the gates. This one is juicy! Serve with a ribeye rubbed with anise, cocoa nibs and sea salt, grilled over mesquite. Drink 2015-2025

“Saturated ruby. Spicy blueberry, mulberry and floral pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of woodsmoke and dusty minerals. Supple and seamless in texture, offering intense flavors of ripe blue fruits, all-spice and star anise. Plays richness off of vivacity smoothly, finishing with excellent energy and supple shaping tannins.” 92-94 points - Vinous Media
