Winemaker Notes

With unusually dark color for Sangiovese and body to match, this wine has fantastic floral, raspberry puree, and intense pure fruit aromatics. A very small amount of new oak serves as a lovely background characteristic. The wine has great palate sweetness, intense acidic fruit and purity. As always with this lovely varietal, it has fantastic bracing acidity that allows it to pair with such a wide variety of foods.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Sangiovese sets the standard for all domestic efforts with this Tuscan grape. With 13% Syrah and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this dark ruby-colored wine offers up a lovely perfume of red cherry and raspberry with a hint of vanilla in the background. This is followed by a sweetly fruited, spicy wine with excellent breadth, a bracing, vibrant palate-feel, and a long, pure finish. This unique expression can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-12 years.

Wine Enthusiast
This is just three quarters Sangiovese, with 13% Syrah and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon (the most ever) added. Dark, silky, young and tart, it is packed with berries, cranberries, pie cherries and a dark streak mixing coffee and black pepper. This is quite young, tight and yet polished.

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.
