Avenger, 2016

Avenger, 2016

70% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache (40% whole clusters and 40% new French and Hungarian oak) Opaque ruby. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, incense, potpourri and vanilla, and a smoky mineral nuance builds as the wine stretches out. Juicy, seamless and fleshy in texture, offering deeply concentrated blueberry, cherry cola, spicecake and floral pastille flavors and salty olive and mineral qualities. Distinctly rich but surprisingly vibrant, even graceful, with silky tannins adding shape and grip to the extremely long finish. 95 pts. Josh Rynolds, Vinous
