2012 Villa Creek Avenger Paso Robles Rhône Blend 750ml

Quick Overview

This wine appears dark and brooding in the glass but then entices you with an intoxicating nose of vanilla scented fruits, wet clay, graphite, cocoa, and plum. The palate is forward and seamless with a rich texture of brûléed berries in a butter crust, curing spices (ginger, coriander, cinnamon, and clove), minerals and black tea.

2012 Villa Creek Avenger Paso Robles Rhône Blend 750ml

They make wines that embody the character of the varieties and their unique vineyard sites while achieving harmony of aromas, flavors and texture. Grapes are farmed following sustainable, organic and/or biodynamic practices. The resulting wines show fruit, minerality, earth and soul. Wines are gently nurtured through fermentation and élevage with native yeast, gentle aeration through pump-overs and délestage. Aging is done in a combination of new French oak, custom made concrete tanks and stainless steel.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 94

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Sporting a deep ruby/purple color, the 2012 Avenger is a thrilling blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache that has everything you could want from a Central Coast Rhone blend. Perfumed and complex on the nose, with vibrant black and blue fruits, violets, lavender, licorice and subtle vanilla bean, it flows onto the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, notable freshness and building tannin that comes through on the finish. Showing the supple, up-front nature of the vintage, yet with ample tannin, it should be better in another year, and shine over the following 4-5.
