Avennia 2016 Sestina – Bordeaux Blends Red Wine

SKU: 3103000248137959 Category:


Red Wine by Avennia from Columbia Valley, Washington. Quite dark in color for Sestina, consistent with this vintage. The nose is very expressive and deep, with dark blackberry compote, creme de cassis, roasted espresso, crushed violets, and graphite. On the palate, there is an intense concentration and depth in the mid-palate, yet the acidity keeps it light on its feet. Berry reduction, rubbed savory herbs, winter mint, and crushed rock minerality on the balanced palate. It finishes with an intense, yet pliant texture. Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc
