Wine News & Reviews

2014 Avennia Arnaut Syrah Yakima Valley - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(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"

2014 Avennia Arnaut Syrah Yakima Valley - 95 PTS - WA

wa95"Deeper and richer than the Justine cuvee, the 100% Syrah 2014 Syrah Boushey Vineyard Arnaut (aged 16 months in 15% new French oak) is a sensational wine that offers awesome purity, full-bodied richness, ripe tannin and a great finish. With classic notes of black and blue fruits, pepper, olive, graphite and lavender, this sexy Syrah is going to drink nicely for at least a decade. - Jeb Dunnuck"

2014 Avennia Arnaut Syrah Yakima Valley - 96 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2014 Syrah Arnaut Boushey Vineyard is cut from the same cloth as the 2012 and has a ripe, full-bodied, sexy profile. Black fruits, scorched earth, violets, and spice all give way to a beautifully layered, seamless Syrah that shows more and more structure with time in the glass. I suspect this might shut down with 2-3 years of bottle age, so try a bottle now or hide them in the cellar for 4-6 years."

2015 Avennia Arnaut Syrah Yakima Valley - 91+ PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(15% alcohol; from vineyard blocks planted in 1994 and 1996, all Phelps clone): Bright ruby. Aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and licorice pastille. Juicy, intense and deep, with enticing dark berry and black cherry fruit flavors enlivened by crushed rock. Wonderfully dense and energetic wine, if still a bit youthfully tight. This is more about fruit than the Le Corbeau Syrah, which offers game and earth nuances, as well as less meaty than the 2014 Arnaut. The bright, persistent finish features fine-grained tannins that spread out to saturate the teeth and palate.- Stephen Tanzer"
