The Story: The winery is a partnership between Marty Tautcher an executive at Microsoft and Chris Peterson (winemaker), who honed his skills at DeLille Cellars and several wineries in France and Italy.  When their paths crossed at DeLille, an immediate bond was created and the idea for Avennia was born.

 

FYI: “Avennia" is inspired by the Roman name for the city of Avignon, and signifies the heart of Old World winemaking. The Avennia wines are designed to tease rather than flaunt; pique interest, not beg for attention. They stand for elegance, delicacy, purity. Our wines are made to enhance conversation, not dominate it, and will be a welcome guest at the table.”

 

Tasting Notes:  The wine opens up to a great aroma or black stone fruits (back cherries, black currants) and a hint of chocolate jumping out of the glass.  The wine is medium to full in body with a seamless palate of balanced black stone fruits, a whiff of dark chocolate, lush mid-palate loaded with great fruit and a hint of spice and the right touch of acidity. This is a great blend that you drink well now but will cellar well for a good 5-8 years.
