Product Overview

The 2018 Villa Creek Avenger, the red blend that launched Villa Creek Cellars in 2001, is comprised of Syrah from G2 Vineyard and Luna Matta Vineyard, and Petite Sirah, Grenache, Carignan, and Mourvèdre from the winery's MAHA Estate Vineyard. This wine offers purity, power, and precision. The vivid, eye-catching ruby/purple color and aromas of black fruits, smoked meats, earth, and spice let you know you are in for a ride. The palate is insane; mouth filling and rich while not being over the top. It really hits the sweet spot of fruit and complexity. The tannins are fine and the length goes on for miles. Drink 2020-2032.

Appellation: Paso Robles AVA

95 Points - Vinous
"Inky violet. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented black/blue fruit liqueur, incense and potpourri scents take on exotic spice and licorice notes with aeration. Deeply concentrated but energetic as well, offering sappy blueberry, cassis, candied violet and fruitcake flavors that are sharpened by smoky mineral and spice flourishes. The spicy note drives an impressively long, energetic finish, and chewy tannins provide shape and firming grip." -JR, Dec/2020

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"A wine with torque and tension, which gives structure to the bold blueberry, currant and smoky grilled herb flavors as they build toward firm tannins. Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Carignan and Mourvèdre. Best from 2022 through 2030. 402 cases made." -TF, 5/31/21
