Villa Creek Avenger Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2013

$49.99

Villa Creek Cellars grew from the intent by Cris and JoAnn Cherry to make a house wine for their restaurant of the same name. Now they produce some of the most highly regarded, and rated, wines in Paso Robles.  The Avenger is always our favorite of their delicious lineup - new release.94 Points Vinous: "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, allspice and star anise. Plays richness off of vivacity smoothly, finishing with excellent energy and supple shaping tannins." 91 Points Wine Spectator:  "Powerful and brooding, yet well-structured. Aromas of ripe blueberry and bitter chocolate open to full-bodied, extracted flavors of boysenberry, smoky beef and spiced sage. Hands off for now. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Best from 2018 through 2027. 400 cases made."
