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…!

About the Producer

Avennia is inspired by the Roman name for the city of Avignon, and signifies the heart of Old World winemaking. We use classic French varietals and blends to make modern wines that express Washington's vineyards and terroirs. 

Our wines are hand crafted in small quantities and in some cases are offered on an allocated basis to our club members and mailing list members. We also offer corporate gifting services and private events.

Stop the presses. This quality at this price? Yes! It's a blend of 48% Grenache, 39% Mourvèdre and 13% Syrah. The aromas immediately grab your attention, with notes of blue fruit, smoked meat, mineral and spice. The palate explodes with blue fruit flavors that show depth and dimension. The finish is lengthy.
91 Vinous -
The 2019 GSM Lydian is a bright and beautiful medium-bodied effort with tobacco leaf, red currants, blackberry and smoky undertones on the palate. Consume this excellent (and really good-value) effort over the next five to seven years.
90 Jeb Dunnuck -
Spiced red fruits, brambly herbs, and a touch of white pepper all define the 2019 GSM, a soft, supple, beautifully balanced, elegant wine that's a great value. It should drink nicely for 3-5 years and is well worth checking out.
90 James Suckling -
Ripe raspberry, black cherry and walnut on the nose. Full-bodied with zesty acidity. Silky tannins. Tasty and straightforward. 48% grenache, 39% mourvedre and 13% syrah. Drink now. Screw cap.
