Justine reflects our belief that Washington is capable of producing world class blends of grape varieties traditional to the Southern Rhone region of France. The name is inspired by one of the great heroines of recent literature, who also sprung from the imagination of the Mediterranean. Dark, seductive, complex, with a chasm of depth: The Justine is a great reflection of Avennia’s mission of expression, and Washington’s generous terroir.
2015 Justine Winemaker's Tasting Note—"The nose on this wine starts deep and brooding, with black raspberry, black cherry, licorice pastille, cocoa, fresh herbs, and crushed rock. On the palate, the Mourvèdre brings a savory umami note, along with black and red fruits, and a variety of desert herbs—sage, lavender, hint of rosemary. The biggest and most structured vintage yet of this wine, it should last a decade and better with ease." - Chris Peterson, Winemaker
