2020 Aviatrix Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep ruby in color, this Cab opens with strong juicy fruit aromas of wild berry, black cherry juice, and ripe black plums, with lovely vanilla notes and a touch of pink peppercorn. On the palate, it bursts with bright fruit flavor that almost has a sweet impression (though it is a completely dry wine). It’s full-bodied in flavor and power, but has soft, streamlined tannin and a silky, light feel on the palate, very atypical for a Cab Sauv. An intriguing, evolving finish will give you lots to think about as you savor this deliciously unusual expression of Cab.
Aviatrix is a collaboration between La Sirena winemaker/owner Heidi Barrett and her two daughters, winemaker Chelsea Barrett, and sales/marketing director Remi Barrett. Aviatrix is dedicated to the intrepid women throughout the history of aviation, who surpass society's expectations and limitations to soar to new heights. We hope you enjoy this mother-daughter collaboration as much as we enjoyed making it.
