Well-established vines in Stone Valley Vineyard root deep into basalt cobblestones, lending this wine a natural concentration, sleek tannins, and Old-World character.
Aromas of violets, black cherry, graphite, earth, and sage. In the mouth, the entry is focused on the front palate, opening up to flavors of black tea, baking chocolate and cassis, ending with a full, long finish. It has nice acidity and depth.
A luscious Syrah with aromas of raspberry, red cherry, and rhubarb. Flavors include blackberry jam, wet stones, and cocoa powder. Stoney Vine Vineyard is located south of Walla Walla in rocky terroir. We use a traditional head-training method for vines, intensifying flavors and allowing for a remarkably true presentation of fruit.
The terroir of this Walla Walla vineyard shines through. Aromas of blackberry, lilac, and chocolate. Flavors of cranberry, pomegranate, dried herbs, and ground pepper. Crisp with a distinct, savory fruit character. Our vines growing on a slope high in the Blue Mountain Vineyard experience moderate summer temperatures, creating graceful and dynamic fruit.
Pure and racy, our barrel-fermented Chardonnay displays vibrant aromas of ripe pear, apple blossoms, honeysuckle and crème brûlée. Full-bodied and creamy, yet with a crisp assertive impression on the palate and a long stony finish. The steep south-facing hillside in DuBrul Vineyard yields grapes with unique flavors and structure. Our Chardonnay block straddles the rocky, South-facing hillside and alluvial soils on the western edge. Less vigorous soils lie on top of basalt and ancient Columbia River deposits of granitic rock.
Dense and complex, this gorgeous wine from intensely rocky terroir is expressive yet structured. Superb aromatics of black licorice, mulberry compote, mocha, and earth. Brimming with energy, this Syrah is dense with harmonious fruit on the palate. The 16.7-acre Stoney Vine Vineyard was planted in 2007 in the Rocks District. First made famous in the late 1990s by Christophe Baron of Cayuse, the area has become one of the most fascinating viticultural areas of the New World. With fewer than 350 total acres planted on this extraordinary geological feature, the fruit is scarce and highly valued.
