Winemaker Notes

#72 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The 2006 growing season in the Columbia Valley presented a year of extremes in weather. The spring was wet and cooler than normal leading into a long, hot summer. Summer provided ideal conditions of dry weather, warm days and cool nights. Harvest began early, with some white grapes picked in late August. A cooler period in Mid-September slowed things down and allowed more hang time for enhanced flavor development.

Pure elixir, viscous and rich, saturated with blueberry, raspberry fruit. Deep with game and spice. Full in the mouth and long on pleasure! Syrah!

The Magnificent Wine Company, Washington
The Magnificent Wine Company Winery Image
The Magnificent Wine Company was founded in 2004 by Walla Walla winemaker, Charles Smith, of K Vintners. The Magnificent Wine Company sources its grapes from only the (most) magnificent vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley which provides the freedom to tailor grape selection exactly to Charles' winemaking needs ensuring that each bottle of wine is equally Magnificent from vintage to vintage.

Washington State is the nation's second largest producer of premium wines. Recently recognized by Wine Enthusiast magazine as "Wine Region of the Year", the high-quality, premium wines have earned the state international recognition, critical acclaim and legions of loyal consumers. It's a winning combination that translates into success in the marketplace.

Washington's success with vinifera grapes is due in large measure to the state's unique geography. The vineyards are planted on the east side of the Cascade Mountains which serve to protect the region from marine weather off the Pacific coast and limit rainfall to just 6-8 inches annually. Low rainfall and free-draining soils allow vineyard managers to control vine vigor in order to promote flavor development. Warm daytime temperatures ripen fruit to perfection, while cool autumn nights protect the grapes' natural acidity.

A large and geographically diverse AVA capable of producing a wide variety of wine styles, the Columbia Valley AVA is home to 99% of Washington state’s total vineyard area. A small section of the AVA even extends into northern Oregon!

Because of its size, it is necessarily divided into several distinctive sub-AVAs, including Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley—which are both further split into smaller, noteworthy appellations. A region this size will of course have varied microclimates, but on the whole it experiences extreme winters and long, hot, dry summers. Frost is a common risk during winter and spring. The towering Cascade mountain range creates a rain shadow, keeping the valley relatively rain-free throughout the entire year, necessitating irrigation from the Columbia River. The lack of humidity combined with sandy soils allows for vines to be grown on their own rootstock, as phylloxera is not a serious concern.

Red wines make up the majority of production in the Columbia Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant variety here, where it produces wines with a pleasant balance of dark fruit and herbs. Wines made from Merlot are typically supple, with sweet red fruit and sometimes a hint of chocolate or mint. Syrah tends to be savory and Old-World-leaning, with a wide range of possible fruit flavors and plenty of spice. The most planted white varieties are Chardonnay and Riesling. These range in style from citrus and green apple dominant in cooler sites, to riper, fleshier wines with stone fruit flavors coming from the warmer vineyards.

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 Blends of Southern Rhône, 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.”
