There is funky wine, and then there is the Rocks District funky wine. Lucky for us we’ve been able to get our hands on some amazing rocks fruit. This Syrah is sourced entirely from Stoney Vine vineyard which is in the “The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater”AVA of the Walla Walla Valley. Planted over the old riverbed of the Walla Walla river this vineyard produces some of the most unique and distinguishable Syrah in our portfolio. Imagine a plethora of earthy and meaty flavors all wrapped together with a single dark berry smashed in and you’ll start to understand.
The 2017 Vintage was our 7th from this vineyard. This wine was fermented 50% whole cluster with native yeasts. Aged in combination of 500lt puncheons and neutral French oak barrels.

93 points - Jeb Dunnuck (2015)- "Opaque purple-colored and loaded with notions of black peppery, charred meat, chocolate, and black olive, it's powerful, concentrated, and rich on the palate, without ever being heavy or over the top."
