Winemaker Notes

“In The Rocks” is our first vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley, located in Milton-Freewater, Oregon between a cherry orchard and En Cerise Vineyard. Described as the most unique terroir in the United States, this dried-up river bed contains large smooth river sized rocks reminiscent of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The soils of this vineyard are the result of an alluvial fan formed by the Walla Walla River about 15,000 years ago. This ancient riverbed of rocky soils is a world class site to grow grapes. We believe that with this terroir we are able to create unique, well balanced and very special wines.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Lithe and well-knit, with expressive raspberry and river stone aromas and distinctive, sleekly layered cherry, bacon fat and black olive flavors that gain richness on the long, polished finish. Drink now through 2024. 525 cases made.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Co-fermented with 6% Viognier, the 2015 Syrah In The Rocks is striking, bursting from the glass with an expressive nose of potpourri, wild plums, espresso roast and grilled meats. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, lavish and velvety, with savory flavors of roasted meats and wild dark fruits, concluding with a sapid, saline finish. While I don't think this boasts the depth and dimension of this cuvée's best vintages, it's a beautiful wine with a strong personality.
JS 93
James Suckling
Aromas of hot rocks and stones with dried fruit follow through to a full body. Yet, it shows silky tannins. A juicy finish. Silky, linear and delicious. Drink now or hold.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

A panoply of Rocks aromatics (call it the Rocks spice box) competes amicably in this syrah, with elements of smoke, mocha, clove and gingerbread scenting the black-plum flavors. Like most Rocks wines, it’s big, but the flavors are delivered with impressive clarity. The tannins are substantial but also fine; for lamb off the grill.

JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
The same blend as The Contender and 94% Syrah and 6% co-fermented Viognier, the 2015 Syrah In The Rocks has a pretty, medium-bodied, elegant style to go complex notes of red and black raspberries, peppered meats, and crushed flowers. It lacks a touch of mid-palate depth but is silky, seamless and incredibly polished, and a joy to drink. It should keep for 7-8 years.

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

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.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
