Syrah has emerged as one of Washington’s
signature varietals, and Amavi Cellars makes
some of the state’s best.
What You Need To Know
Amavi Cellars is a Washington
winery that’s owned by three families: the Goffs, the McKibbens
and winemaker Jean-Franois Pellet. A native of Switzerland
(admittedly, a country better known for its watches than its wine),
Pellet nevertheless has a gift for tapping the refined side of Walla
Walla Valley reds. Amavi was started in 2001 as a lower-priced
sister label to Pepperbridge wines, the acclaimed, pricey estate
that’s owned by the same partners. Although more affordable,
Amavi’s wines arguably compete with those of Pepperbridge—
meaning that they’re usually a total steal.
Peppery black plum
and blueberry scents.
Rich and meaty, with
velvety black-fruit flavors.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Savory red meat dishes,
such as steaks, chops,
roasts and braises.
