Notes From The Winemaker:

65% syrah, 31% cabernet sauvignon, 4% mourvèdre

Tasting Notes:
2010 delivered a profound expression of "the stones,” showcasing both the savory and sweet elements of great Walla Walla
Valley syrah, the high-tone floral perfume of cabernet and the mid-palate weight and game notes of mourvèdre. The nose
offers a complex mix of mineral, earth and leather layers, as well as beautiful black cherry, dark raspberry, anise and violet aromas. Though intense, there is a lovely perfumed quality, and uplifting acidity, that lead to a long, rich finish with a mineral and spice core.


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Also exceedingly elegant and finesse driven, the 2010 Rediviva of the Stones is a blend of 65% Syrah, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Mourvedre that comes mostly from the River Rock Vineyard located in pebbly strewn region around Milton-Freewater, but also includes a small amount of grapes from the estate’s Rockgarden Vineyard as well. The Syrah was fermented all whole cluster while the Cabernet Sauvignon was all de-stemmed. Aged for 14 months in neutral puncheons and barrels, it has a bright, perfumed and downright Cote-Rotie-like profile of red and black fruits, pepper, game and exotic flowers along with a medium-bodied, supple and yet energetic and lively mouthfeel. Opening up in the glass, with racy acidity and a full, rich mid-palate, it is the spitting image of class and while already approachable, it will have at least 7-8 years of longevity. Drink now-2020.

This estate is now run solely by Nina Buty Foster, with Chris Dowsett functioning as the winemaker. The wines lean heavily towards the elegant, borderline lean, end of the spectrum so those looking for overflowing richness need to look elsewhere. Nevertheless, they feature gorgeous purity of fruit, energetic textures and overall beautifully made profiles." - Jeb Dunnuck (Jun 2013)
