2011 Avennia Justine Red Blend

Producer: Avennia
Country/Region: United States - Washington - Columbia Valley

Justine reflects our belief that Washington can produce world class wines using grape varieties traditional to the Rhone Valley. Dark, seductive, complex, with a chasm of depth: Justine reflects Avennia's mission of expressing Washington's complex terroirs.

A beguiling blend of aromas: black raspberry and mulberry at its core, with hints of jasmine, and bergamot. This uplifting nose runs counterpoint to the palate, where the Mourvedre and Syrah lend a gravitas of black fruits, grilled meat, and herbs. This complex wine finishes with a swirling vortex of dark fruits and echoes of lavender. Delicious now, yet also built and balanced for 7-10 years of age.
