Avalon, Zinfandel. 2016
Dark berry and spicy notes entice the nose, while ripe plum, blackberry and a touch of blueberry flavors entertain the taste buds. Juicy and structured, Avalon Zinfandel is well balanced and has a long, velvety finish.
2016 was another phenomenal year in California. The season kicked off with much needed winter rains that set the stage for months of steady and even growth. Temperatures were slightly below average, a good thing, which lead to excellent phenolic development. Zinfandel of this vintage shows deep color, well-balanced sugar and acid, plus intense flavor.
Avalon ZIN and BBQ ... heaven together! Try with Memphis-style pulled pork, beer-can chicken and smoked ribs.
