Rated 96 by James Suckling
Aromas of plump red fruit with a wonderful array of herbs and spice. Medium-bodied with bright, well-balanced acidity that carries the fruit effortlessly. Refreshing, fine tannins. So much complexity coming from the ground and whole spices. I like the note of dried roses and violets. A total delight. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. ... More details

Varietal: Grenache

The purple skinned Grenache grapes have become, over the past few decades, one of the most widely planted grape varietals on earth, thanks to their unique characteristics and the fact that they are an ideal varietal for use in both single variety and blended wines. They tend to be very light in body, due to the fact that they have low tannin levels and not much acidity to them. However, they can add a boost of alcohol to any blended wine, and also offer their complex and spicy flavors of pepper and dark berries. Grenache grapes grow very well in dry and arid region, such as their native home of central Spain, and struggle with damp conditions in which they are prone to rot or develop mildew. Thankfully, modern techniques and technology has managed to overcome many of these problems, resulting in this varietal continuing to grow in use and popularity.

Region: Washington State

Washington state currently holds host to over six hundred wineries, each producing wines using the many classic grape varietals which flourish in the arid, dry region to the east of the Cascade mountains. Since the Washington wine industry began in the beginning of the 19th century, great efforts have been made to irrigate the semi-desert which makes up much of the state, and the results have been enormously successful in regards to creating an environment in which a wide range of grapevines can flourish. There are certain fine wineries in the wetter western region of Washington, although these make up less than one percent of the region's overall wine production levels. Recent decades have seen red wines becoming increasingly popular in the United States, and many of those produced in Washington are considered to be amongst the country's finest produce.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.

Appellation: Walla Walla

Washington State is a fascinating wine region, and one which typifies the kind of quality and innovation currently found in the United States' wine scene, with widespread utilization of modern and traditional wine making methods, resulting in magnificent wines of character and distinction. Within Washington State, we find the beautiful sub-region of Walla Walla, a relatively small area typified by rolling hillsides and arid, dry soils. Walla Walla benefits enormously from the hot and dry climate it receives, which allows the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varietal grapes which grow there to reach full ripeness each year, and express all of their wonderful flavors and aromas. Due to a very successful few decades, the number of wineries in Walla Walla has increased rapidly, meaning that more and more different and quality wines are now coming out of this unique and fascinating place.
