Winemaker Notes

 The nose is flamboyant with graham cracker, pureed raspberries, tar, and cigar box. Rustic, perfectly polished tannins and a long, pure finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
This is really impressive with Brunello-like aromas to it, showing cherries and hints of wet earth. Full-bodied, round and rich with lots of fruit and flavors. Lively finish. Give it two or three years to soften.
JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
Chris's 2015 Sangiovese (there's 13% Aglianico) spent 22 months in new and once-used barrels. Red currants, ripe cherries, dried earth, spice and a hint of nuttiness all emerge from this deep ruby/opaque colored effort. It's medium to full-bodied, incredibly seamless, silky, and polished, with fine tannin emerging with time in the glass. It's one of the great vintages for this cuvée.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Blended with 13% Aglianico, this wine hails from Serra Pedace, Seven Hills, Loess and Mill Creek Upland vineyards. Its light sour cherry, anise, cigar box, and spice aromas lead to tart fruit flavors with lightly grainy tannins and a long finish. All about subtlety, it needs food alongside it to fully deliver.

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.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
