The top blend at our 33rd Annual Spring Bash and Blending Party!

Attendees from coast to coast attended our annual Spring Bash in May 2018 where each team tasted, measured and created their own blend under the guidance of veteran AVV winemaker Kevin Hall.
   
Once each team produced their favorite wine, spirited judging ensued for the top pick.  Team “Royal Blenders” blended the winning wine at the 33nd annual Spring Bash and Blending Party.  Team members Heidi Ulbrich (Healdsburg), Richard Olsen (Chico),  Sandy and Steve Handel (Fairfield), Bill and Kerry Dinsmore (Fortuna), Rudy Ulbrich (Richmond), Loty Zermeno (Richmond) and Tim Hayes (Windsor) created a classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon,  Merlot and Cabernet Franc.  The wine was aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.

In the glass there are aromas of dark fruit hinting at the complexity.  Flavors of black cherry, cassis, blackberry and blueberry, along with a touch of cola and an earthy backbone fill the glass.  This is a layered wine with a long lasting, rich finish.
 
The wine is only sold to wine club members, visitors to the tasting room or online at avvwine.com.
