Winemaker Notes

Blend: 90% Syrah, 10% Viognier

Critical Acclaim

JD 97
Jeb Dunnuck
One of the wines of the vintage, the 2018 Syrah In The Rocks is 90% Syrah and a whopping 10% Viognier, that was 70% destemmed and aged in 30% new puncheons. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and incredibly well-balanced, it has a beautiful nose of red plums, blackberries, violets, spring flowers, and bacon fat. As with many of Matt’s Syrahs, it has a distinctly Old World style and it’s just a joy to drink. While it’s ready to go today, I see no reason it shouldn’t hold for 10-15 years.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Displaying a classic ruby core, the 2018 Syrah In The Rocks was made with the addition of 10% Viognier and rockets out of the glass with complex fruit and floral aromas. Elements of orange blossom, honeysuckle and damson flower entice the nose with elements of spiced cherry compote, black raspberry skin, a rocky mineral essence and subtle oak tones. Medium-bodied and with 13% alcohol, the Syrah is instantly impressive in the mouth with incredible complexity, a balanced structure, rich, elegant fruit flavors and a floral nuance. Concluding with a long-lingering and ever-evolving finish, the wine remains persistent across the aftertaste and begs me back for second, third and fourth sips. Made with 30% whole clusters, the wine rested for a year and a half in 30% new puncheons. Bravo! I want more.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
You don't often find a Syrah this elegant and supple, but this is a floral and pretty red, with violet, raspberry and crushed stone accents that glide on the lingering finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
The Viognier coferment shows on this wine, with perfumed notes of flower and tangerine essence followed by plum. On the palate, the concentration is light, but the flavors are expressive.

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.”
