Winemaker Notes

A penetrating floral bouquet of wild roses, freshly picked blueberries, and leather. Impeccable balance with integrated, dusty tannins. Extraordinarily broad, sweet, and satisfying mid-palate, exuding blackberry, ripe cherry, fig jam, pepper, olive tapenade, and roasted coffee. Long and clean finish.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12.5% Malbec, & 12.5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

JD 97
Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Reserve is another magical wine from the genius of Chris Figgins. Based on 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance equal parts Malbec and Petit Verdot, it’s a monster of a wine offering dense, tight aromatics of ripe black fruits, classy oak, graphite, lead pencil, and tobacco. Full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and seamless on the palate, it has a touch more plushness than the straight Cabernet Sauvignon, with a great mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s pure class.

James Suckling

Blueberries, blackberries, oyster shell, walnuts, vanilla and cocoa butter on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Intense and concentrated, yet sleek and silky in texture. Spicy and seductive finish. Try from 2022.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12.5% each Malbec and Petit Verdot, the 2018 Walla Walla Reserve explodes from the glass with a luscious and generous expression, offering up notions of black raspberry, spiced plum and blackberry jus. Full-bodied, this heavyweight champ has a velvety denseness to the mid-palate, with a luscious essence of crème de cassis, resinous purple flowers and chocolate-covered blueberries. The wine continues to evolve with persistence for more than a minute on the long-lingering finish. It's a gorgeous and generous wine that spent 22 months in new and used French oak barrels. If you can get your hands on some of this juice, don't skip the chance. Rating: 95+

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

View all products

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
