Villa Creek ‘Avenger’ 2005


Massive fruit basket. Blackberry, cherry and plum. Woody spice of clove and allspice, camphor plus sweet calcium minerality. Weighty mouth feel with a silky texture and bright acidity on the finish. Big fruit balances a potent 15.3% alcohol. 65% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre, 10% Grenache. A very good wine. (Reviewed 8/23/11)
