VILLA CREEK RED RHONE BLEND "AVENGER" PASO ROBLES 2012

Wine Advocate

94 Points

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. WA # , #214 (Aug 2014) Drink 2015 - 2020

 

NVWE Notes: This is an ideally ripened and brilliantly made New World Chateauneuf du Pape. The nose molds rich scents of black cherry, red currant, black currant, blackberry, date, red rose, mulling spice, black olive, licorice root, pink peppercorn and minerals into a deep and elegant melange. That pinpoint balance between ripeness and elegance is evident on the palate and grows more so with airing, leading to a focused finish that replicates all the impressions and promise suggested in the aromas. This is a big wine, but a graceful one, and although it is destined to improve for several more years, is a great pleasure already. A blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache, 500 cases produced.
