Avennia Lydian GSM Columbia Valley 2019
Syrah Blends | US
Uncanny Wine Enthusiast review, isn't it? Because that is EXACTLY what we felt…with one BIG exception. The Wine Enthusiast people are talking about a $40 retail price! Not us! Not today! UNDER $25 for all you spectacular Invino lovers! Washington State continues its wild hot streak, and this big, finesse-filled beast of the Southern Rhone blend had us on the first sip. A colossally over-delivering powerhouse! 45% OFF! 93 POINTS! That’s how we do!
Deep, rich, spiced, warm, and concentrated, this could be mistaken for many a $60+ Chateauneuf-du-Pape in a blind tasting in a room full of somms. Wonderfully long and complex, this is just a knockout at our price – black cherries, red raspberries, currants, blueberries, bacon fat, white pepper, dried Herbs de Provence – it's all there… just waiting for your glass! Get a few to share, but get even more to save for yourself. We’re absolutely thrilled to have this wine, but there is not a lot to go 'round! While it lasts…!
