A rich wine coming from one of the warmest harvests. The tannins are velvety and the finish is long and soft.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
We’ve been tasting Uriah, Spring Valley’s cabernet franc–dominant blend, since my first issue, in December 2000. Eighteen vintages later, it remains a product of place, of the graceful wind-shaped Palouse Hills in the northeast corner of Walla Walla: It’s generous in its flavors of plum and violet, with hints of balsamic and herbs alongside dusty minerality; for brisket.

James Suckling
A right-bank style blend with a wealth of cassis and dark plums on offer. There’s a floral edge, too. The palate has richness and freshness with very supple and approachable, soft tannins. 43% cabernet franc, 38% merlot, 14% cabernet sauvignon, 3% petit verdot and 2% malbec.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Refined and well-built, with savory cherry, dried sage and spice flavors that persist toward polished tannins. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2023.
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Red Wine Uriah checks in as 43% Cabernet Franc, 38% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec that spent 18 months in 40% new oak. Almost always one of my favorites in the lineup, the 2015 reveals a deep purple color as well as a classy bouquet of spiced red fruits, cedar, and dried herbs. It's relatively restrained yet has good mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and terrific balance. Give it another 2-3 years and it should keep nicely for 10-12.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This wine is a blend of 43% Cabernet Franc, 38% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. Aromas of whole green pepper, fresh herb, cocoa and cherry lead to lighter-styled fruit flavors backed by lightly grainy tannins. Those looking for big and bold, look elsewhere. This one is all about sophistication and elegance and it delivers both in abundance.

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.
