A small family winery (Mike, Gale, Amanda, Angela and Matt) that produces Rhône-style red and white wines from two vineyard properties in the Walla Walla Valley. They produce wines only from varietals that they love and farm themselves. From their first vintage in 2007, the wines have been remarkable with a consistent complexity, depth of flavour, finish and distinctive terroir. Almost everything they do is by hand, planting each vine in the vineyards, trellising, pruning, dropping fruit and then picking and sorting the berries at harvest. 

The name says it it all here; this is a New World interpretation of the classic French Bordeaux blend. Leading with Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine immediately invites aromas of black forest cherries and raspberry compote wrapped in leather and mulling spices. Full-bodied on the palate with fine-grained tannins that bolster the ripe fruits and savoury flavours that persist. The elegance and power of this wine is gradually revealed in the underlying minerality from the "In The Rocks" vineyard where the grapes are grown, leading into an extraordinarily long finish. 

This wine will be a knock-out with grilled fare such as ribeye steaks or pan-seared veal chops.


Press Reviews

The 2018 The Classic is a rock star of a wine. Based on 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot, it’s medium to full-bodied and nicely concentrated, with a great mid-palate as well as silky tannins. Showing classic Cabernet notes of darker currants, leafy herbs, tobacco, cedar, and iron, it’s going to cruise for two decades in cold cellars. While this comes from the Rocks region of the Walla Walla Valley, it’s not too overtly funky or wild, and I love its purity.
