93 points Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice: "Stop the presses. This quality at this price? Yes! It's a blend of 48% Grenache, 39% Mourvèdre and 13% Syrah. The aromas immediately grab your attention, with notes of blue fruit, smoked meat, mineral and spice. The palate explodes with blue fruit flavors that show depth and dimension. The finish is lengthy."
Avennia has established itself as one of Washington's rising stars in a mere handful of years, to the point where they're just stars. So to have them release an absolutely dynamite delicious Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre for less than $20 has us feeling the sense of urgency. As in: buy by the case and we'll bet you'll want even more when you try it. Fully concurring with the review above, it's an outrageous value.
Lydian is a new way to experience Washington wine, guided by Avennia's dedication to quality and balance. In music, Lydian refers to a mode, or scale that is used as a building block for some of the world’s oldest and newest masterpieces. This happy sounding mode brings joy on its own, yet when molded and crafted by talented musicians can become a work of timeless art.
