Number 5. Avennia Arnaut Syrah Boushey Vineyard Yakima Valley 2012 - $50
In a very short time, Avennia has catapulted itself into the upper tier of the state’s wineries. This wine, however, takes things to a whole new level. It pops with aromas of smoked meat, earthy funk, and mineral followed by dense fruit and savory flavors that are rich but don’t sacrifice balance.
