94Wine Enthusiast

...aromas of olive, fire pit, charcuterie, plum, dried herb, orange peel and parsley that are intense but still show a sense of subtlety. The palate is textured and rich but still in balance, full of fruit and savory flavors.

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Brooding, rather wild aromas of black raspberry, mocha, peppery herbs, black olive and licorice pastille. At once dense, juicy and savory, with its dark raspberry fruit complicated by game, licorice and pepper nuances... Not a particularly fruity style, and quite firm on the finish, but boasts excellent mid-palate texture and fruit intensity.

90James Suckling

This is a ripe and gently spicy red-plum and raspberry style with approachable, easygoing tannins that cast ripeness into the final impression.


United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley

Walla Walla Valley AVA likes to call itself the Napa Valley of Washington, and given the concentration of well-reviewed wineries in the appellation, the comparison is understandable. The Walla Walla appellation is comprised of 340,000 acres, of which 1,200 acres are vineyards. Walla Walla is located in the southeastern corner of Washington and it extends slightly into northeastern Oregon. It is named after the Walla Walla River Valley, and the city of Walla Walla is the commercial center of Washington’s wine industry. The city was founded in the 1840s by the Hudson’s Bay Company as a trading post, but as early as the 1850s farmers were planting grapes for winemaking. Prohibition shuttered winemaking in the early 20th century, but a winemaking renaissance started in the 1970s when Leonetti Cellars, still one of the state’s most acclaimed wineries, started producing acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon. Walla Walla’s AVA status was awarded in 1984 and today there are more than 100 wineries. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most frequently planted grape, followed by Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese Chardonnay and Viognier.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
