Review: ***+ $ Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma, CA = GOOD VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Here we have a popular, value priced Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma.

Original tasting and review : This is Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma, CA, from an undesignated recent vintage (restaurant-served).

In the glass: Deep dark red.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, fresh, tangy red fruit elements.   From the aroma, seems like this will be purple, bright and somewhat structured.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact full of aromatic red and black berries. Lush and quite full on the palate. But sandy perfumed notes keep pulsing to a clean finish that delivers a tiny finishing whisper to your upper cheeks.

In summary: Overall,rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a big plus for its depth and aromatics.   Awesome value.
