We are so excited to bring you the second release of AVIATRIX! This time, it’s a blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah, with a pinch of Cabernet Franc. It’s totally different than our first release of Aviatrix and yet, equally delicious.
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 wines are dedicated to the intrepid women throughout the history of aviation, who surpass society’s expectations and soar to new heights. We hope you enjoy this mother-daughter collaboration as much as we enjoyed making it!
Blend: 51% Petite Sirah, 47% Syrah, 2% Cab Franc
Tasting Notes: 2017 Aviatrix Red Wine (tasted 4/23/20 by Heidi, Chelsea & Remi)
The 2017 Aviatrix blend is dark blackberry in color, with ripe and enticing aromas rising from the glass – black cherry and plum fruit aromas, hints of dark chocolate and roasted almond, 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.
