The Avatar represents winemaker Daniel Benton's dedication to handcrafting a Napa Valley wine using Old World traditions. Grapes for the 2015 Avatar came from three, diverse vineyards in two appellations within the Napa Valley.
The 2015 CROZE AVATAR shows layers of old-world style, structure & complexity. Hugely complex, the wine reveals a broad spectrum of briary blackberry, black cherry and currant notes, with nuances of violet and bittersweet chocolate. Muscular tannins support the plush, expansive palate, while impeccably balanced acidity adds vibrancy. This wine reflects the depth and complexity of the combined vineyards, enhanced by extended barrel aging.
