2014 Avennia Valery Red Blend
Country/Region: United States - Washington - Columbia Valley
Valery is named for the patron saint of wine in the St. Emilion region that inspired it.
We started with old vine Merlot from a stony block in the heart of the Yakima Valley and added complex, aromatic Cabernet Franc from the Horse Heaven Hills. The result is a balanced, complex wine with the elegance and ethereal perfume that this blend of two of Washington’s best varietals are known for.
Winemaker's notes: "Leads with aromas of black raspberry, huckleberry, tobacco, crushed rock, and a hint of cherry liqueur. The palate is plush and silky, with elegant notes of red fruits, milk chocolate, freshly turned earth, and spearmint, leading to a clean,
mineral-laden finish." - Chris Peterson
