Scores and Tasting Notes

A shimmering golden-green hue attracts the eye signaling great things to come. Meyer lemon, key lime and passion fruit step right up, supported by a supple texture suggesting richness without ever crossing the line. Layers to be discovered and a long, lingering finish to enjoy. – Winemaker Charles Smith

94 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (v2017)

“All barrel fermented (10-15% new French oak) the 2017 Viognier Powerline is a Condrieu-like effort that has beautiful notes of musky pineapple, caramelized orange, and honeyed flower notes. Rich, medium to full-bodied, textured, and beautifully balanced, it’s a stunning Viognier to drink over the coming 2-3 years.”

92 Points – James Suckling (v2017)

“This is edgy and dynamic with sliced apples, lemons and honey. Medium to full body. Transparent, focused finish. Rocky. Creamy texture and tropical. Drink or hold.”

Vineyard – Powerline

Walla Walla Valley, Washington State White Wine (100% Viognier, 15.0% Alcohol)
A 30-acre estate vineyard, located over 1200 feet elevation. Powerline Vineyard was planted in 2012 in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, just south of Walla Walla in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. The soils are well drained with cobblestone river rocks and underlying layers of sand and gravel deposits, allowing vines to develop very deep and strong roots. The cobblestone rock was brought down river from the Blue Mountains and deposited on top of the ancient river bed. The deep sand and silt below the stones bring a great purity to the grapes, while high elevations keep acids high, producing very well-balanced wines with remarkable complex characters.
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Vintage: 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by a long and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!
