Avennia Justine 2015
|United States, Washington, Columbia Valley
The 2015 Justine is the entry-level Rhône bend and is normally a mix of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It's schedule to be bottled by the time you read this, and it has terrific, old-school notes of olive tapenade, peppery herbs, flowers and darker fruits in its medium to full-bodied, concentrated personality. It's going to be another terrific value, as well as a great introduction into the style of this estate.
