AVENNIA WINEMAKER CHRIS PETERSON ON THE 2016 VINTAGE:
"I truly believe that the top 2016 wines will be some of the most compelling wines Washington has produced. While yields were in the moderate range, conscientious growers kept the fruit loads in check, and were aided by a nearly perfect growing season. Bud break was very early, and the flowering and set were very good. Just when we were gearing up for another hot and early harvest, like 2015, the weather cooled. July and August were very mild for Eastern Washington and the grapes were able to ripen slowly and perfectly through mid-October.
The resulting red wines...are some of the most exciting in memory. In addition to great complexity, and, notably, depth, there is an underlying texture across many of the wines which is simply unprecedented in my memory." - CP
