Established in 2018 Requiem Wines is the latest project from the team at AVERÆN, aimed at producing Napa Valley quality red wine at Columbia Valley, Washington, prices! The 2020 Requiem Red is a blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Merlot from four prime vineyard sites in the Columbia Valley, mostly the Yakima Valley AVA. Yakima Valley is the state’s oldest AVA (in fact, the first federally recognized area in the Pacific Northwest), and is home to some of Washington’s most storied and historic vineyards. It also is the largest sub-appellation of the Columbia Valley, both in total size and planted acreage, with the valley home to over one quarter of Washington’s total grape vine acreage.

The fruit (biodynamically farmed) was harvested (Merlot in late August/early September and Syrah in late September) and completely destemmed. Each varietal was vinified separately in stainless-steel fermentors. A series of blending trials ensued, to ensure the perfect blend, followed by élevage in tank—no oak.

Dark burgundy. Enticing aromas of dark, brambly fruit and a mélange of aromatic spices. The palate is fruit-forward with flavors of blackberry, cassis and blue plum. Rich and mouth filling, the fruit is punctuated with peppery spice and a hint of earthy richness. Positively decadent.
