2016 Tall Tales Syrah – Stoney Vine Vineyard (Estate), Walla Walla Valley
100% Syrah
Named after Corey’s Grandpa Fred and his famous “tall tales,” this Estate grown and produced bottling of Syrah exemplifies what the Rocks District of Milton Freewater is all about – earthy, gamey, aromatic and concentrated with a medium body. Whether it was Grandpa Fred’s heroics on the river as a young boy or the mighty bears he slayed in the big woods, his stories were always fascinating. Perhaps that’s what inspired Corey to become a winemaker — every bottle of wine is a new story waiting to be told! Details > PDF Tasting Sheet

The bouquet floats out of the glass and draws you into all the extraordinary fruit while the ripe tannins provide a silky finish.

The diversity in elevation and soil profiles make it an extremely special place to grow grapes. Our 2017 BFM consists of Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Petit Verdot, and stands up to its reputation of being the biggest Merlot based blend coming out of Washington today!

Was one of your wines a bit fizzy when you opened it?

The winemaking team wants you to know what that’s about.  The bottles in your STS Tasting Kit are bottled from our regular 750ml bottles.  To maintain the integrity and freshness of the wines, our team places a small amount of CO2 in each bottle right before filling.  Sometimes, some of this CO2 dissolves into the wine and creates tiny gas bubbles.  If you experience this, it’s totally natural and there is absolutely nothing to be concerned about.  Give your glass a really good swirl and you will find the fizz dissipates very quickly. The more you know!


$50 Off in our Tasting Rooms or Online

Each tasting kit includes a personal gift code for $50 towards a minimum purchase of 3 bottles. Offer Expires 12/31/2020.
