The top blend at our 34th Annual Spring Bash and Blending Party!

This wine will begin shipping in mid-May 2020.

Attendees from coast to coast attended our annual Spring Bash in May 2019 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 “Cave Cohort” blended the winning wine at the 34th annual Spring Bash and Blending Party.  While this team fielded some veteran competitors, it also included five first time attendees!  Team members Marty & Ellen Silge (Healdsburg, CA), Dianne Barber (Granite Bay, CA), Marilyn Miller (Grass Valley, CA), Bruce Deane (Grass Valley, CA), Jack Johnson (Fulton, CA), Jill Peylios (Ocean Beach, CA) and Yarro Beydoun (Kilavea, HI) created a juicy blend from three lots of Zinfandel,  Merlot and Malbec.  The wine was aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels.

This dark purple wine has aromas of rich dark fruits, black cherry, raspberry and cassis.  Earthy, yet bright berry flavors of black cherry, plum, vanilla and chocolate fill the glass.  This is a nicely balanced wine, with a strong core of fruit flavors and a long finish.
 
The wine is only sold to wine club members, visitors to the tasting room or online at avvwine.com.
