Avennia Gravura Red Blend 2013

Avennia Gravura Red Blend is made from 48% Cabernet Sauvignon 41% Merlot 11% Cabernet Franc

Gravura is our ode to the Graves AOC of Bordeaux, emphasizing a harmony of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The name is a play on an artisan printing technique, and on the Bordeaux region of Graves, which features similar blends. Featuring more Merlot and with the addition of Red Mountain fruit, this wine is designed to be more generous and voluptuous in style, while still remaining complex and balanced.

Gravura Tasting Notes: Beautiful nose of red and black fruits, some savory leaf notes, mocha, pencil shavings. The palate is elegant and balanced, almost pretty: raspberry, black and red currants, milk chocolate and caressing tannins. Finish medium-long and ethereal.

 


Review:

"The 2013 'Gravura' follows up the highly impressive 2012 bottling of this red wine. This. Is a blend of 47% Cabernet, 44% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc. The blend was aged in 50% new French oak for 20 months prior to bottling. This wine begins with aromas of red cherry, red raspberry, mocha and sandalwood. There are flavors of coffee grounds, black olive, black cherry and boysenberry preserves. Lovely texture and mouthfeel, with light tannins and a long finish. This will cellar beautifully. (Best 2016-2028) - OB"

Review:

he 2014 Gravura should be a killer value and it offers Graves-like notes of dark fruits, coffee, damp earth and mineral in a fresh, elegant, silky style. You can feel the tannin here, but they're approachable and ripe, and I suspect this should show nicely right out of the gate. - Wine Advocate 91-93 Points

Avennia Justine Red Blend 2014

Avennia Justine Red Blend 49% Mourvedre, 28% Grenache, 23% Syrah

Justine reflects our belief that Washington is capable of producing world class blends of grape varieties traditional to the Southern Rhone region of France. The name is inspired by one of the great heroines of recent literature, who also sprung from the imagination of the Mediterranean. Dark, seductive, complex, with a chasm of depth: The Justine is a great reflection of Avennia's mission of expression, and Washington's generous terroir.

 Tasting Note: Big black cherry, blackberry, hints of orange peel, fresh herbs and loam on the nose. Plush and round on the palate. Dark earthy fruits from the Mourvedre, along with citrus high notes, mountain flowers, jasmine, and savory herbs. Balanced and complex without forgetting its hedonistic roots in the Southern Rhone.
