Aviary “Birds of Prey” Red Blend 2018, California
Birds of Prey is a delicious bold and flavorful red wine with no hard edges. A bouquet of berry fruit and almond blossoms invites you to sip a yummy mouthful of black cherry jam layered with cigar box, spice, and cocoa. Velvety tannins keep the wine grounded. It is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Malbec. The wine aged for 12 months in French and American oak. The name and label are an homage to the birds that hunt in their vines, allowing Aviary to naturally manage the vineyards without pesticides.
