Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 4% Syrah.

Deep crimson colored, our 2006 exhibits aromas of blackberry, bing cherries, cassis and anise with smoke, vanilla pie crust and clove notes from oak aging. This agin additionally adds breadth and depth on the palate. This supple and easy drinking wine showcases its Napa heritage.

About Avalon:

Like the Indie films that inspired Avalon, our wines are original and uncut. We focus on the essence of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. We differentiate ourselves by producing flavorful wines at a decent price. We specialize in Cabernet Sauvignon and just recently branched out with our first release of Merlot from the 2009 vintage.

Avalon - AKA Paradise. According to Arthurian legend, the town of Glastonbury in the U.K. was once known as Avalon. Avalon has long been associated with paradise. It is a land of souls. Many believe that King Arthur's soul rests there and will some day rise again to defend England.

Our wines don't cost a king's ransom, but that's exactly what our Winemaker Alex Cose used to make. We joke with him and say, "Make us a wine that tastes like $75, and then let's sell it for about $15".
