Avennia 2018 Parapine Grenache (Columbia Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

This wine was fermented in stainless steel and concrete and then aged in neutral oak. Blended with 10% Mourvèdre, initially brooding aromas of raspberry, bramble, white pepper and dried herb lead to an intensely flavored, dense palate. The balance is exquisite, and it has plenty of hang time on the finish. It's a bit clenched right now but has all the stuffing to go the distance. Give it a healthy decant if drinking in the near term. Sean P. Sullivan
