Kendall-Jackson AVANT Red Blend Large Format

K-J AVANT

California

Red Blend (3-Liter)

2012

This sultry large format K-J AVANT Red Blend has a sophisticated base of Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. Dry and balanced in acidity, it showcases tannins thick enough to pair with steak, yet refined and silky enough to enjoy anytime. Flavors of black cherry jam, a sprinkle of pomegranate juice, crushed black pepper, and shaved dark chocolate combine to create a wine that is smooth and fruit forward.

Winemaking

Aged for over 9 months in French and American oak barrels (11% new). The Stelvin screw cap closure helps to preserve the aromatic freshness and youthfulness of the wine. A base of Merlot contributes rich fruit flavors of raspberry and strawberry. Syrah adds hints of spice and dark chocolate. Malbec delivers a smooth, sleek texture and bright flavors of ripe plum.
