Cabernet Sauvignon

We are excited to announce the first release of our Aviary Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet.  After years of seeking more fruit and new contracts to grow our Napa Valley line, this new release is a long time in the making!  It isn’t in bottle yet but the barrel samples have us excited!  We utilized our long term contracts and came across some incredible Merlot to help grow the production while letting the wine sit in barrel for 14 months.

California Wines

California Cabernet Sauvignon

The Aviary California Cabernet Sauvignon captures the quintisesstial big, rich, dark fruit flavors that have made Cabernet Sauvignon such a popular wine from the Golden State. 

 

On the nose you will find generous blackberry and blueberry fruit with a touch of baking spice. The mid-pallet continues with dark fruit expressions of black plums and cassis, some red fruit in the form of subtle strawberry preserves, and just a hint of bright menthol or eucalyptus. The French and American oak program adds notes of caramel, cigar box, and a romantic, dusty leather and cedar quality that gives the wine depth and layers. Balanced acidity and soft but structured tannins give this wine a gorgeous texture. 

This wine is one that pairs exceptionally well with your favorite steak or roast, but will shine just as well on its own. this wine is a wonderful example of the rich, smooth, and elegant style that Aviary has become so well known for.

Composition: Napa County, Sonoma County, Lodi

California Chardonnay

The Aviary California Chardonnay is a classic California style with tropical flavors of banana, pineapple, guava, and papaya made lively with great citrus acidity balanced with soft textures and layers of pie crust, vanilla, and buttery croissant. 

 

This wine pairs spectacularly with a bevy of main dishes, from roast chicken to creamy seafood pasta; but would also work very nicely aside an after-dinner cheese plate, or even creme brulee. Best of all, this is a wine to enjoy by the glass with good company. 

Composition: Monterey County, Sonoma County, Mendocino County

Aviary’s inaugural release was a red blend from the 2010 vintage, where we utilized a diverse spectrum of fruit from throughout Napa Valley.

It was a time when the wine industry was still feeling the affects of the Recession, so we were able to make a wine that delivered amazing value. By 2015, the cost of Napa Valley grapes had skyrocketed, making it impossible for us to make our wines at the same costs. The last vintage of Napa Valley Red Blend was 2015.

Our mission since that time has been to search far and wide for the best Bordeaux varietals in California that could deliver the quality of Aviary at an accessible price. The result is Birds of Prey, a reference to our hunting expedition across the state and the protectors of the vineyards that we continued to see over these vineyard sources.
