Avennia Gravura Red Columbia Valley 2015
Just read THIS! “93 POINTS: This is a sophisticated, well-balanced and keenly priced Bordeaux blend that definitely impressed me.” -- The Wine Advocate
Uncanny, isn’t it? Because that is EXACTLY what we felt...except...the Wine Advocate is talking about a $45 price! Nope! Not today! Washington continues its wild hot streak, and this big, finesse-filled Bordeaux blend had us on the first sip. A colossally-overdelivering powerhouse! The price! 93 points! We didn’t get much, though!
Deep, rich, polished, lush and concentrated, this could be mistaken for many an $80+ Bordeaux, we think, in a blind tasting. Wonderfully long and complex, this is just a ridiculous knockout at our price --- get a few to share, but get MORE to save for yourself. We’ve been working on this deal for months -- and there is not a lot! While it lasts…!

About The Producer
Inspired by the naturalist vigneron methods in the Old World, our winemaking is based on doing less in order to let the fruit speak for itself. With this approach, sourcing the finest fruit possible is paramount. We use native yeast to ferment the wines, and bottle them unfined to preserve the most complexity and expression. Blending trials are used extensively to achieve the finest texture and balance possible.
