93Vinous / IWC

...remarkably pretty, with an array of violets and roses complementing wild berries and hints of licorice...silky-smooth, with cooling acidity and a cascade of crisp red fruits underscored by saline minerals that add a tactile crunch.

93James Suckling

Aromas or ripe strawberries, cherry pie, spicy herbs and overturned earth. Firm and chewy with medium to full body and plush tannins. It’s broad and velvety with ripe red-fruit character and a creamy finish.

93Jeb Dunnuck

...pretty cherry and raspberry-like fruits that give way to more spice, chocolate, and savory herb notes with air...medium-bodied, elegant, pretty, polished vintage...

90+ The Wine Advocate

...notes of black cherry and roasted plums in the glass along with a dusty floral essence and hints of oak. Full-bodied, it offers flavors of black raspberry, plum compote and notes of graphite, ending with a long, spicy, tannic finish.


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, Sangiovese

This red grape is largely grown in central Italy. As the sole component or in a blend, it gives us Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino and Super Tuscans, among other favorites wines. The name is derived from the Latin for “blood of Jove.”
