2015 Avennia Sestina Red Blend Columbia Valley - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(bottled in June; from a 1997 planting; 60% new oak): Bright medium ruby. Very expressive, perfumed scents of cassis, violet and cocoa powder. At once large-scaled and brisk, showing captivating Cabernet Franc floral lift to its flavors of black fruits, espresso and minerals. A juicy, energetic midweight with serious rising length, this beauty delivers excellent palate coverage without any impression of weightiness. Stands out now for its flashy 2015 fruit but this wine should settle down in bottle and mature gracefully. - Stephen Tanzer"
