"Avni is built around Larry Stone’s estate vineyard in the Eola Hills, & supplemented by similar sites. Even though it's Stone's entry-level wine, it’s not simple; instead it reflects the shallow soils of the Eola–Amity Hills in all their mineral tension: The wine is bright & tightly packed, weaving rose-petal notes & whole-cluster spice with dark plum-skin flavors. It sustains a lovely vibrancy of flavor, grounded and direct. (2,300 cases)".

"Brooding & youthful, with a compact core of lively acidity & tannins framed by nuanced raspberry, river stone & savory spice accents that persist on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2026. 2,300 cases made.
"The 2017 Avni Pinot Noir reflects the greater impact of our own Lingua Franca Estate fruit in the wine. The resulting aromas are beautiful expressions of rose petal, wet stone, black plum, red cherry, & savory elements. It has a remarkably delicate tannin structure, but is also layered with seductive fruit. It is vibrant and fresh". - Winery
