Avennia, Arnaut

For our taste, no one grows finer Syrah in Washington than Dick Boushey. We make this wine with minimal manipulation using native yeasts, and bottling it unfined and unfiltered to allow the “place” to shine through. We named this wine after the Provencal Troubadour Arnaut Daniel, who invented the Sestina poem form, thus connecting our two flagship efforts. 2010 Arnaut – This wine features a riveting nose of black cherry, pomegranate, jasmine, iodine, bacon fat, and mineral. The palate hits with hedonism: juicy black fruits, licorice, flowers, grilled meat, and iron. The mouthfeel is silky and unctuous, with a long finish of herbs, flowers, and minerals.
