Vibrant, transparent, exhilarating on many layers. Plum, stone, green olive. This wine unfolds with pain grillé, tobacco leaf, roasted earth as it continues on with subtle yet fragrant floral tones. Wrapped up in silky texture that continues without end. OH BOY... IT’S SO GOOD! - Charles

“In the running for the best Grenache from Washington, the 2016 Grenache The Boy Powerline Vineyard is a single vineyard release from a site in the Walla Walla Valley and was brought up in neutral oak. It has a Rayas-like perfume of rose petals, black raspberries, cherries, spice, and smoked meat. This carries to a medium to full- bodied, thrilling textured, seamless Grenache that has a stacked mid-palate, no hardedges, and a great, great finish. Hats off to the team at K Vintners for this incredible Grenache.” 

95 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (v2014)
“The 100% Grenache 2014 The Boy is a ripe, wild, peppery, meaty, rose petal and olive scented effort that has full-bodied richness, with a sensational, layered and silky texture, as well as ripe, polished tannin and a great finish. It’s difficult to find a better Grenache from the New World."


 

Vineyard
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Powerline (100%): A 30-acre Estate Vineyard 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 and alcohol low, producing very well-balanced wines with remarkable complex characters.
