100% Powerline Estate Vineyard: A 30-acre Estate Vineyard was planted in 2012 in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, just south of Walla Walla in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The soils are well-drained with cobblestone river rocks and underlying layers of sand and gravel deposits, allowing vines to develop very deep and strong roots. The cobblestone rock was brought downriver from the Blue Mountains and deposited on top of the ancient river bed. The deep sand and silt below the stones bring a great purity to the grapes, while high elevations keep acids high and alcohol low, producing very well-balanced wines with remarkable complex characters.
At first whiff, it has incredible depth. Blueberry undergrowth, stone, and a liquid minerality. Regal in the mouthfeel. Layered in the flavor spectrum. Savory to the living. A real beauty.
Aromas of dried red berries, colored flowers, dried fruit, and sage. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins. Begins with bright, fleshy fruit and gains iron-like mineral character as the palate evolves. Herbs begin to appear as well. Intriguing and completely delicious. Excellent complexity and balance going on here. 39% grenache, 38% mourvedre and 13% syrah, the rest counoise, grenache blanc, picpoul and cinsault. Will be even better in a year. Best after 2023.
