The 2015 Avalon CAB begins with a pleasant and fruity aroma of juicy blackberry and plum plus a little spice. Taking a sip reveals quite a tasty wine with lots of jammy and ripe dark berry and raisiny fruit, nice oaky spice, a soft texture and touches of vanilla. On the mid-palate, the fruit turns a bit sweet and tart leading into the long finish of lingering spice. At only $8 this wine offers a ton of value and a lot of Cabernet character. Pair it with a cheeseburger.
