Wine of The Night – Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon

Out of all of the Napa Cab-Sauvs we’ve tried in the $20ish dollar range, the Avalon is my new favorite.  I really enjoy the Liberty School and the Ravenswood as well, but the Avalon is more of a mouthful. Please give it a try if you haven’t already. It’s $23.78 at the B.C. Liquor Store. If you don’t like it, I’ll drink it for you…  No, I didn’t say I’d pay for it.  I said I’d drink it.

Regarding the photo above:  It’s amazing how good a bottle of wine can look in a dog park.

Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes (as described by Avalon Winery)
“Deep ruby colored, our 2005 wine shines in the glass. Blueberry and plum nuances from the Syrah complement the dark cherry and black raspberry characteristics of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Supple texture and forward fruit flavors are balanced and enhanced by aging in French and American barrels. Oak aging provides a lingering note of toasted oak and vanilla while giving breadth and depth to the palate. The wine should continue to develop over the next 4-7 years.”
