The WallsMahana Syrah

Like a stunning Walla Walla Valley sunset, Mahana Syrah is a complex, lavish expression from the famed Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. Named after Mr. Mahana, who established Freewater, the sister city to Milton in 1889, this Syrah, Viognier co-fermentation is marked by notes of cured meat, olive tapenade and leather. Aged in large format 20% new oak barrels.

The Walls Cruel Summer Grenache Rose Bottle Preview
The WallsCruel Summer Grenache Rose

Don’t let summer without good rosé happen to you! Composed of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre, this is made in a Provençal style. Light copper-pink colored, it possesses lovely aromas of strawberry, tangerine, star fruit, pink roses, summer flowers and whiffs of garrigue and white incense. With brief skin contact, the flavors are lightly extracted but well delineated, with notes of grape skins, tangerine peel and minerals. On the back, the wine takes a vivid turn, evoking a Côte d’Azur afternoon, with touches of fraise and citron and light spice on the dry finish.

The Walls Lip Stinger Grenache Blanc Bottle Preview
The WallsLip Stinger Grenache Blanc

Sourced from the French Creek Vineyard in the Yakima Valley, the ‘Lip Stinger’ starts with kiwi, mango and green papaya aromas that fill the nose. The palate is highly refreshing and gratifying, showing a nice, silky mouthfeel. Green apple, green papaya and mango flavors all connect nicely to the minerality. This is every bit outstanding. Consider enjoying it in the short-term while the brisk minerality exists

The Walls Gaspard Red Mountain Syrah Bottle Preview
The WallsGaspard Red Mountain Syrah

The 2019 Syrah Gaspard looks to be brilliant, and certainly in the same realm of the 2018. Lots of blackberry and cassis fruits as well as violets and a liquid rock-like minerality emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with incredible purity of fruit, ripe yet polished tannins, and a great finish. It's going to be a gem of a wine.

The Walls Ramparts Bottle Preview
The WallsRamparts

The Southern Rhône-style blend from this estate, the 2019 The Ramparts sports a ruby/plum hue to go with an incredibly spicy, cedary style offering plenty of savory red fruits, medium to full body, ripe yet building tannins, and complex notes of sandalwood, white pepper, and dried flowers. I love its complexity, balance, and texture.

The Walls French Creek Vineyard Chardonnay Bottle Preview
The WallsFrench Creek Vineyard Chardonnay

We were able to get a little extra Chardonnay from French Creek vineyard in 2019. We wanted to do something different than we had done in the past, and we refer to this wine as a “black” Chardonnay, because at the time of pressing the grapes, the must is allowed to oxidize, turning it a dark-brown color, almost black, hence the description. And, instead of a gentle press cycle like we have done with our other Chardonnays, we pressed these grapes hard.
