, and Smart Buy."This fresh and vibrant red is tightly wound around fine tannins, offering a generous burst of currant and plum fruit, hinting at clove and pepper as the finish lingers harmoniously. Drink now through 2021. 5,244 cases made." Aug 2014
"Fragrant and young, this Cab bursts with juicy berry fruit flavors. Brambly raspberry, a whiff of mint, plenty of cassis and a dusting of spice all combine in a well-structured wine ready for the table. Firm and supported with mineral-soaked acids, this has the texture, tannins and push-through to age gracefully, though it’s perfectly ready right now." May 2014
"Smells like: dusty brambles, dried mint, bright fruit. Tastes like: black cherry, raspberry, currant, fig, exotic spice. Mouthfeel: complex structure, balanced fruit-to-acidity. Drink with: steak; cassoulet; grilled portobello mushrooms."

Fight the freeze with our next offering on the Top 100 Wines of 2014 list, the Amavi Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It's ready to drink now!! Fireside dining is your best option with these temps, winelovers, and we can't think of anything better to go with your first glasses than country pate with fig compote on crostinis. If you prefer a meatless choice, make it porcini mushroom phyllo cups. Each will pair beautifully with the earthy side of this Washington Cab. We are particularly drawn to the spice flavors in the wine, and suggest that you prepare baked eggplant stuffed with ground lamb, pine nuts and Middle Eastern seasonings of cinnamon, cumin, paprika and tamarind. It's to-die-for delicious, and will only be better with this Amavi to wash it down... A quicker alternative would be pan-seared veal chops drizzled with a red wine-currant sauce. For sheer comfort, make it braised beef raviolis with raisins and onions. Open another bottle and bring out the room temperature French Comte cheese with a crusty artisan bread and watch the happiness continue. You don't want to miss out on this Walla Walla whole lotta delicious, winelovers!
