"The 2011 Avenger is one of the most harmonious wines of the year. Rich, dark, sumptuous, yet impeccably balanced, it boasts superb depth and fabulous overall balance. The 50% whole clusters are totally integrated with the luxurious voluptuous fruit here. A stunning, totally vivid wine, the 2011 Avenger is firing on all cylinders today. The 2011 is 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache, fermented with 50% whole clusters."

"Bright purple. Vibrant aromas of blackberry and candied violet, with an intensely spicy overtone. Juicy and firm-edged, with sharply focused flavors of dark berry liqueur, smoky minerals and candied flowers complemented by notes of spicecake and licorice. Shows impressive vivacity and lift for its power and finishes with smooth, harmonious tannins, bright minerality, and outstanding persistence."
