2017 Avennia "Arnaut - Boushey Vineyard" Yakima Valley Syrah (Previously $60)

SKU #1491208 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Syrah Arnaut Boushey Vineyard is 100% Syrah from Dick Boushey's terrific vineyard located on the western side of the Yakima Valley. This is a cooler site, and I always find a certain Northern Rhone-like character from this region. This 2017 has a touch of Saint-Joseph in its blacker berry fruits, spring flowers, spice, and peppery aromas and flavors. With a medium-bodied mouthfeel, wonderful purity of fruit, and a great finish, drink this elegant yet ethereal Syrah over the coming decade. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good dark red-ruby. Black fruits, licorice and black pepper on the nose. Combines a mellow savory quality and compelling sweetness, with dark fruit flavors complicated by notes of charcuterie, saddle leather, black olive, flowers and spices. The wine's salinity and harmonious acidity give it shape and lift. The savory finish features very suave tannins and lingering notes of garrigue, flowers and spices. In comparison to the 2016 last year, this wine is fresher and spicier, and less brooding. (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Syrah Boushey Vineyard Arnaut is a success with a mineral nose and black-fruited core, sprinkled with notes of black pepper and purple flowers. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, the wine is still tight but has phenomenal balance and a dustiness across the mid-palate, ending with a long-lingering finish with ease and finesse. Only 400 cases were produced. Drink 2019 - 2028. (AM) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Coming from one of the state's premier Syrah vineyards, this wine has aromas of tilled soil, raspberry, mineral, dried herb, cigar leaf and blue fruit that show sneaky complexity. Medium-bodied but still elegant blue fruit flavors coat the palate, with a long, snappy finish upping the interest. Give it time to open up. *Editors' Choice* (SS) Inner quote mark (12/2019)
