Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The opening salvo of the inaugural AVAtrix is a shotgun blast of cherries, mulberries, caramel and cedar. Layered into that energetic mix are hints of hibiscus, potpourri and crushed stone. The palate of the wine is hyper-focused and filled with coursing acidity that delivers lip-smacking freshness and long lingering strawberry and cranberry notes. The density and firm structure of AVAtrix combine with notes of vanilla and pipe tobacco to provide a smooth, driven, tantalizing finish that will keep you yearning for more. 105 cases produced.
