No holding back here. A powerful co-ferment of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Blackberry, olive, No. 5 perfume, pencil and alpine air rules the nose. Black fruit, cassis, tobacco, nutmeg, seashell and a profound sense of place oozes from this and lights our powerhouse. The KING of the Royal Slope. - Charles

“A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Syrah, the 2015 King Coal Stoneridge Vineyard is ample and generous, bursting with aromas of ripe cherries, licorice and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and lavishly textural, its ripe but succulent core of fruit conceals a rich chassis of fine-grained, savory tannins. Powerful and exuberant but beautifully balanced, with a mere 13.5% alcohol, it’s a head-turning red blend to follow for the better part of a decade.”

95 Points, James Suckling
There’s a floral edge to the cabernet on the nose with violets and blue roses, ahead of ripe blackcurrants and red plums. The palate delivers a very vibrant and composed feel with dark berries, laced with lightly roasted coffee. Stylish blend and the pick of the cabernet-syrah quartet at K Vintners. A blend of 80% cabernet sauvignon and 20% syrah. Fine now, but best from 2024.”

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

Stoneridge Vineyard (100%): Alluvial fan gravel bed, the site rests above the flood plain of the Columbia River. Under the topsoil is a layer of caliche and basalt 6-12" deep, creating a calcium and iron rich media that forces roots to struggle.
