  • What we love

    Made by one of Washington State's best producers, the 2012 “Rediviva of the Stones” Red Blend delivers a beautifully structured wine with alluring aromatics and complexity. Both savory and fruity, this blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvèdre displays lovely depth and density. In both the nose and on the palate, the Syrah brings lush red fruit, with deep raspberry and black cherry layers. The Cabernet adds high-toned floral elements and substantial mid-palate weight, as well as blackberry, currant and olive flavors, with the Mourvèdre contributing to the wine’s tannic structure and spice elements of cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper.

About this Wine

The 2012 “Rediviva of the Stones” focuses on Syrah’s complexity and is grown in the cobblestones of the ancestral Walla Walla riverbed in the southern part of the Walla Walla Valley. The 2012 vintage has aged nicely and is a terrific value. 370 cases made. Cheers!
