2017 Aviatrix Red Wine
Our second release of AVIATRIX - a blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah, with a pinch of Cabernet Franc. Aviatrix is a collaboration between La Sirena winemaker/owner Heidi Barrett and her two daughters, winemaker Chelsea Barrett, and sales/marketing director Remi Barrett. We hope you enjoy this mother-daughter collaboration as much as we enjoyed making it
Blend: 51% Petite Sirah, 47% Syrah, 2% Cab Franc
AVA: California - 51% Amador County, 49% Napa Valley
The 2017 Aviatrix blend is dark blackberry in color, with ripe and enticing aromas rising from the glass - black cherry, plum and berry pie fruit, with accents of pink peppercorn, allspice, and licorice. On the palate it is powerful, dense and concentrated, while still being silky and balanced. Light dusty tannins and nice length give great ooomph! The magic of blending provides noteworthy complexity and a luxurious impression that tastes more expensive than it is - this wine overdelivers on quality, and we’re proud to share it with you.
