TASTING NOTE: Avondale employs ducks rather than pesticides to take care of pesky snails in the vineyard. This blend of Shiraz, Cab, Malbec and more is vegan, made with natural yeast and certified organic. It's matured for more than a year in French oak, which adds a smoky touch to a core of spicy dark fruit. It'll be just ducky with burgers. Price $ 16.95
