Price: $130.00

Say my name! The Beautiful, that’s right! A sophisticated perfume of Asian spice, camphor, black olive, undergrowth that continues on the palate. Black fruite compote, campfire. Fresh and as long as a Swedish Midsummer night. Did I say beautiful? Yes, I did.

98 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)
”The 2016 Syrah The Beautiful Powerline Vineyard is stunning and one of the finest Syrahs in the vintage. Coming all from Clone 470 [...], and brought up in mostly neutral oak, it’s a rich, meaty, smoky, full-bodied Syrah that has classic Northern Rhône-like aromas of black olives, smoked meats, ground, earth, and dark fruits. With a stacked mid-palate and beautiful balance, it’s going to keep for 10-15 years.”

96 Points, James Suckling
“A charmingly fragrant wine that has abundant red plums, swathed in white pepper and fine-ground spices. The palate is smooth, plump and supple with good weight and depth of flavor, finishing boldly in an assertive yet still supple mode. A blend of syrah and viognier. Drink over the next decade.”

94 Points, Wine Spectator
”This red combines harmony with personality, offering evocative blueberry, black olive, river stone and smoky bacon flavors that build toward the dynamic finish. Drink now through 2027.

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

Powerline Vineyard (100%): 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.
