Tasting Notes

"93 POINTS - A wine that just screams “The Rocks” is the 2013 Syrah River Rock Vineyard and it is about as classic a representation of this terrific terroir located around the town of Milton Freewater as I could imagine. Medium to full-bodied, fresh, focused and with fine, polished tannin, it has tons of pepper, bloody meats, olive and ripe dark fruits all soaring from the glass. I like it today, but it will keep for a decade." - Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck (June 2016)

 

Grapes for this wine come from the sustainably-farmed River Rock Vineyard, owned and managed by Dana Dibble.  Vines were planted in 2001 on rocky soils with optimal drainage. This is said to be one of the warmest sites in the Walla Walla Valley.
 
This Syrah ferments with native yeasts and is aged in 25% new French oak.  It is aged for 20 months in barrel on the lees before bottling.
