Washington (Walla Walla)
|Grape Type:||Cabernet Sauvignon|
Avennia Sestina Red Blend is made from 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc
The Sestina is a poetic form from Medieval France. Just as a contemporary poet can use an old form like the Sestina to express modern ideas, we use the traditional Bordeaux blend to make modern wines that express Washington fruit. Sestina is our vision for an old vine blend where the focus is on structure, balance, and complexity. This wine is designed for the cellar, but is enjoyable now.
Sestina: This wine is a blockbuster, with black currant, black raspberry, saddle leather, freshly tilled earth, vanilla, and violet on the nose. Exceedingly rich and balanced on the palate, with great poise and structure for long aging. The finish echoes with fresh black fruits, minerally touches, and floral notes.
A longer-term prospect, the Cabernet Sauvignon dominated 2014 Sestina sports a deep, opaque ruby/purple color to go with fabulous notes of blackberries, currants, smoked herbs and sweet oak. Full-bodied, concentrated and rich, yet also elegant and with terrific purity, give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades.
