Product Description

Avennia Arnaut Syrah is made of 100% Syrah

For our taste, no one grows finer Syrah in the state than Dick Boushey. We named this wine after the Provencal Troubadour Arnaut Daniel, who invented the Sestina poem form, thus creating a connection between our two flagship efforts.

Arnaut Tasting Note: a tribute to Syrah's feral heritage—black olive, earth, smoked minerals, and cured meat, along with a dollop of black fruits and lavender. The palate is super-concentrated with savory notes and ripe black fruits. The finish is long, complex, ruminating. Massive wine that remains light on its feet.

 


(from older blocks planted in 1994 and 1996; made with wild yeasts, aged in 15% new oak and bottled in April without fining or filtration): Bright medium ruby. Sexy, musky scents of dark raspberry, game and violet face powder. Not a thick wine but wonderfully silky and sweet, with the violet quality and healthy integrated acidity giving the cherry, raspberry and light game flavors terrific floral lift. Really compelling inner-mouth perfume and personality here, with the native yeast fermentation contributing texture. This wonderfully plush, savory, pliant wine finishes long and aromatic, with perfectly integrated tannins and lingering sweetness.-- Stephen Tanzer 92 Points

Possibly up there with the top Syrahs in the vintage, the 2014 Syrah Boushey Vineyard Arnaut is a classic Washington state Syrah that has lots of ripe plums, blueberries, violets, iron and chocolate to go with a rich, layered style on the palate. It has fine tannin and should benefit from short-term cellaring. -Wine Advocate 92-94 Points

Coming from one of the state's most esteemed Syrah vineyards, this wine wins over fans by its brains rather than its brawn. High-toned aromas of dried herbs mix with notes of raspberry, blue fruit and iron. The flavors are fresh and layered, bringing a sense of vibrancy and deliciousness. 92 Points Wine Enthusiast 

 

Winery: Avennia

The Avennia Estate
Our goal is to make wines that evoke clarity: clarity of place, clarity of type, clarity of purpose.
We believe this is best expressed by using the classic French varietals and blends, with methods passed down over generations. We work within this context to allow Washington vineyards and terroirs to distinguish themselves. Terroir is only readily appreciable in a well-formed, harmonious wine. Structure is the backbone from which beauty can radiate.

Avennia is inspired by the Roman name for the city of Avignon, and signifies for us the heart of Old World winemaking. Our wines are designed to tease rather than flaunt; pique interest, not beg for attention. They stand for elegance, delicacy, purity. Our wines are made to enhance conversation, not dominate it, and will be a welcome guest at the table

Paradigm Cabernet Franc 2014

This Cabernet Franc is black cherry red in color with aromas of blueberry jam and white pepper spiciness. With wonderful ripeness we were able to make one of our best Cabernet Francs. The wine is very lush across the palate with a silky softness and sweet impression of ripe blueberry fruit. Tannins are very moderate with a nice light texture in the mid palate. This is an easy drinking Cabernet Franc, rich and complete and very enjoyable.

Paradigm Cabernet Franc is made from 76% Cabernet Franc,  13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
