Winemaker Notes

This is the 13th vintage of Uriah. In 2011, the Merlot fruit was rich and soft while the Cabernet Franc expressed complexity and floral components because of this the blend is both complex and balanced. The nose is terroir-driven expressing wheat, hay, crushed basalt and underlying summer fruits. The palate is extremely rich and soft with notes of cassis, cherry, blueberry, and hints of exotic fruits. The tannins are velvety and the wine is seamless.

Blend: 46% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6%Malbec

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
A blend of merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec, and cabernet sauvignon, this estate wine has an old-school feel-in its cedar scents and Walla Walla leafiness; in its dusty cherry flavors and dusty tannins; and mostly in its weighty comforting texture. The cool 2011 vintage has lent this an elegance that will gain even more definition in the cellar, if you wait.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Lithe, open-textured and appealing, with cherry flavors matched to refined tannins. Hints of cinnamon and floral linger on the deftly balanced finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.

Spring Valley Vineyard, Washington
Spring Valley Vineyard Winery Video

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.

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.

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. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
