    (Amavi Cabernet Sauvignon) #1; COLOR-dark; NOSE-inky and big; some oak and cedar box; a grassy mint component; PALATE-good firm tannins; rich and jammy on the mid-palate, but not over-the-top; a more serious wine; I like the tightness and the nice bitter and beautiful tannins; this is a Home Run wine for me; I really like it; dark; great chocolate meets spruce tree; great cabernet-like characteristics to it; has Bordeaux-like structure and appeal; almost like a classic Left Bank with a little Australian love; really classic and refined; really solid; GUESS-$50; one of the more interesting wines we've uncovered on WLTV in a long time; this is ridiculously good and ripping; delicious; WE-91; GV-93

    (Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley) An unusual, somewhat muted nose that initially shows more Syrah components of earth and game than aromas associated with Cabernet. Fruit aromas jump out occasionally but then recede. Spice, particularly anise and white pepper, start to emerge over time. A rich, focused taste that packs a wallop with fruit and spice. Grainy tannins provide texture and structure. Recommend an additional six months bottle age. 81% Cabernet, 12% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 2% Cab Franc. Seven Hills, Pepper Bridge, Les Collines, and Lefore vineyards. 14.1% alcohol. 5,974 cases produced.
