91pointsAvennia 2017 Sestina Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))

Cellar Selection

As usual, old vine fruit from Bacchus, Dionysus and Red Willow make up this wine. The aromas draw you into the glass, with notes of black cherry, cassis, graphite, dried leaf, coffee, herb and licorice. The flavors are light on their feet out of the gate, fleshing out with time open. A long, coffee-filled finish caps it off. It needs some time to come into its own. Best after 2026 with a very long life beyond that. Sean P. Sullivan
