Review: 2012 Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon California

Avalon.CAB .2012 128x300 Review: 2012 Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon CaliforniaHow good can an “everyday” Cabernet Sauvignon that costs 12 bucks possibly be? Not bad at all, actually.

Avalon, courtesy of Purple Wine Co., is a very straightforward wine, but it avoids the problems of being overly sweetened and overly alcoholic (at 13.8% abv). Instead what we get is a slightly peppery, slightly chocolatey wine with blueberry notes coming across strong on the forefront. The finish brings out more of a blueberry cobbler character, with just a hint of baking spices. For 12 bucks, it’s a solid double.
