Tasting Notes:
tasted: February 15, 2010 , Kevin Ham
88 points "The fruit has settled down a bit, more complexity, however the alcohol has risen and now over powers the fruit. Going downward."

93 points "The 2005 Avenger (65% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache) is a deeper ruby/purple color, wonderfully sweet, with an expansive nose of blackberries, cassis, and acacia flowers. Full-bodied, with more structure, muscle, and concentration, this is accessible now but built to hold up for 5-8 years of cellaring. The beautiful purity, the impeccable harmony/equilibrium are hallmarks of these Villa Creek wines, and this has it in spades." Best 2007-2015
