Welcome Mayor Bill! This brand-new tiny cuvee of 70% Grenache, 18% Syrah, and 12% Mourvèdre is our first single vineyard GSM and it hails from Upland Vineyard. Brilliant ruby wine with piercing aromatics of bright red fruit, lavender, sandalwood and camphor. An intense palate with balanced acidity and refined lengthy tannins. We selected our most robust Grenache as the center here with Syrah and Mourvèdre heightening the intensity to create a wine built to age. Fermented on native yeast and punched down by hand for an average 29 days before being basket pressed to neutral 500L puncheon for 22 months.

Who is Mayor Bill? Upland Vineyard in Sunnyside, WA was planted in 1917 by William “Bill” Bridgman making it the first commercial planting of Vitis vinifera in our fair State. Bill is the visionary grandfather of Washington wine and all of us that make wine here now owe a debt to the twice elected former Mayor of Sunnyside. We are honored to work with the Newhouse family farming the same hill of rocks and dirt that Mayor Bill saw the potential in over 100 years ago.
