2016 Latta Wines Grenache Freewater Rocks Vineyard

142 cs. made. $45/btl.

91 pts. Wine Enthusiast

Deep garnet in color, it exhibits hedonistic red fruit with mineral, underbrush, dark bing cherry and raspberry aromatics. Heady aromas transport to rural Kentucky on gravel road at night in Spring. Intense, vibrant, and lingering on the palate, our Freewater Rocks Grenache exudes a richness and depth with fine-grained silky tannins. Crop load balance is always the key with Grenache, a healthy 3.3 tons/acre for warm 2016. A lengthy maceration with 60% stems and 40% whole berries lend wildness to the aromatics and length to the finish. This 100% Grenache is aged in neutral 500L puncheons and barrique for 25 months before bottling.
 
Freewater Rocks vineyard is located in the Rocks District of Walla Walla. Planted in 2000 in the core of Freewater Cobbly Loam this is an OG vineyard site with four generations of fruit farming behind it. The site is farmed by Dana Dibble, a man who grew up on that rocky dirt, a third generation farmer who transformed these hardscrabble orchards into the manicured rows of vines standing among the stones today. Dana and Andrew have collaborated on many vintages and vineyard projects over the years and we are excited to bring you this Grenache.

91 pts. Vinous

Brilliant ruby in color, it exhibits mineral, underbrush, sage and rosemary with dark bing cherry and raspberry aromatics. Intense, vibrant, and lingering on the palate, our Grenache exudes a rich sanguine quality with fine-grained sweet tannins. Great care is taken in the vineyard to produce the finest fruit possible. Many thinning passes and removal of the shoulders of the cluster to concentrate the full expression of Upland Vineyard. Crop load balance is the key to this wine's concentration, a judicious 3.4 tons/acre for warm 2016. A lengthy maceration with 50% stems and 50% whole berries lend wildness to the aromatics and length to the finish. This 100% Grenache is aged in neutral 500L puncheons for 22 months before bottling.

Upland Vineyard is a rolling extremely sloped site located in the Snipes Mountain AVA.  Snipes Mountain was named for Ben Snipes, an early Yakima County pioneer who built a house at the base of a mountain in the 1850s. The area was first planted in 1917 by Washington State wine pioneer William B. Bridgman. The vineyard on Snipes Mountain was one of the first to plant Vitis vinifera in Washington. Snipes Mountain is a seven mile long anticline ridge created by fault activity. The "peak" is 1,290 feet high, rising from the floor of the Yakima Valley with unique, rocky soils, known as aridisols.  Soil deposits below the area are composed of gravels and sediments left by ancient river beds, deposits range in size from a fist to a football. The rocky composition of this warm site provides the backbone of our Grenache block from Upland.

2017 Latta Wines Syrah Lawrence Vineyard

*NEW WINE!* 96 cs. made. $45/btl.

93 pts. Wine Enthusiast | 93 pts. James Suckling | 90 pts. Vinous | 94 pts. Owen Bargreen

Brand new 100% Syrah sourced from Lawrence Vineyard (the longtime home of our Roussanne) in the Royal Slope AVA. All native, loads of whole cluster, hand punched down, and basket pressed; this wine carries Rhone aromatics coupled with Washington intensity. The nose opens with tapenade on grilled bread moving to macerated blackberry, rosemary, and cracked pepper that continues on the palate. A seamless wine with polished tannin and a finish that goes on and on. We are ecstatic to finally bring this wine to your glass!

Lawrence vineyard is a cool site overlooking the Royal Slope and the Saddle Mountains to the south. The Syrah block sits at 1375 feet of elevation in Taunton silt loam soils that give way to broken basalt. The sloped elevation of Lawrence gives it protection from frost that wreaks havoc in vineyard sites lower on the slope. The long season at Lawrence gives us intense flavor and color while retaining freshness and vitality.

Washington Cabernet vines grown in basalt derived gravel on the shoulders of Red Mountain give excellent depth, intense fruit and ample structure from this awesome site.

Cheers!

Bright yellow gold white wine, with meyer lemon, notes of hay, pronounced salinity, and petrichor. We sprawled the west side of the vine rows to keep sunburn out and freshness in. A cropload of 3.6 tons/acre kept acid and sugar in balance with Lawrence vineyard’s trademark intensity. The Roussanne was whole cluster pressed and fermented native in barrel, a mix of barriques and puncheons with 15% new French oak from Jupille. The wine rested in barrel for 16 months until bottling.
