Winemaker Notes

Balance and expression of the unique Spring Valley terroir are the goals for this Right Bank-style wine. Complex layers of herbal notes, orange zest, and almond paste on the nose evolve into complex aromatic notes of summer berries, candy, and cigar. Ultra-rich, round flavors of ripe berries and bright summer fruit along with soft polished tannins lead to chocolate, caramel, and vanilla notes on the spectacularly long and complex finish. A very "Bordeaux-driven" wine and a perfect expression of Spring Valley.

60% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This new Uriah is 60% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot and 6% Malbec—all estate-grown. It offers more complexity and detail than the rest of the Spring Valley line-up, and carries its almost 15% alcohol well. Whiffs of wood smoke, tobacco, and marzipan lead into a lovely mix of red fruits, spices and barrel flavors. It’s just a bit hot in the finish; and the tannins seem attenuated, but that may be due to its youth. A fine bottle.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Tight, with a red pepper edge to the cherry, currant and multiple spice flavors, echoing impressively on the mildly chewy finish. Needs time to gain some flesh. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2011 through 2017. 2,600 cases made.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Uriah Merlot Blend contains 60% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It is considerably more complex aromatically than the Muleskinner cuvee with enticing notes of black fruits and Asian spices. Full-bodied and still tightly wound on the palate, this structured offering will benefit from several more years of cellaring. Well-balanced, smooth-textured, and long, it will have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2027.

Spring Valley Vineyard, Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Washington
2007 Uriah
Spring Valley Vineyard is a limited-production winery producing only estate-grown-and-bottled red wines. For more than a century, the Corkum-Derby family has been farming the area known as Spring Valley. Grapes were first planted in 1993. Spring Valley produced its first estate grown and bottled wine, Uriah, with the 1999 vintage. Today, Uriah is one of Washington's most acclaimed red wines, and the Spring Valley family of wines has grown to include seven red wines: Uriah (Merlot-based blend), Frederick (Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend), Nina Lee (100% Syrah), Katherine Corkrum (100% Cabernet Franc), Mule Skinner (100% Merlot), Derby (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) and the newest release, Sharilee (Petit Verdot). The names given to their wines are a tribute to the family members who have struggled and succeeded in farming the same land where Spring Valley Vineyard now flourishes.

Walla Walla Valley

View all wine

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years. It is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers. Though it is cooler and wetter than most of Washington State’s viticultural areas, irrigation from the Columbia River is still common, though some vineyards on the rainier eastern end of the AVA are able to dry farm.

The conditions in the Walla Walla Valley are perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of black olives, smoke, bacon fat, and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are produced in a range of styles from smooth and supple to tannic and structured. White varieties are a relative rarity here. Sauvignon Blanc is sometimes blended with Sémillon in the style of Bordeaux white blends, resulting in a richer, rounder version take on the variety. Plantings of Viognier are minimal, but often quite successful.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

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, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
