Notes of black fruits, oil-cured olives, smoky bacon fat and a gravelly minerality. The palate is rich, ripe, and round and the acidity is balanced by lush tannins.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The Waters 2009 Syrah Forgotten Hills illustrated the fascinating but not especially ripe array of flavors that proprietor-winemaker Jamie Brown evidently prizes. Smelling mouthwateringly like lentils in ham stock laced with sage and black tea, its further intimations of red fruits usher in a tart-edged cherry and rhubarb on a grainy palate, leading to a persistently interactive and for red wine downright bracing finish. “We had (relatively) large clusters and high skin-to-juice ratio here, yet you get strength of character,” notes Brown. And it’s a character, I hasten to add, that won’t be everybody’s cup of Syrah infusion! It should however be very interesting to follow for at least the next 3-5 years. (Dec 2012)

Waters Winery was founded in 2005 by Jason Huntley and winemakers Jamie Brown and Greg Harrington. They released their first wines in 2006 and opened a 5,000 square foot sustainable winery the following year. Their winemaking is influenced by a preference for old-world style wines that emphasize the terroir of Walla Walla Valley, where they own several vineyards. Their range of wines includes small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, single vineyard Syrah, Interlude - a Bordeaux style blend, Viognier and Rose. Dreux Dillingham is assistant winemaker.
Technical notes
Planted in 1996, this seven acre estate vineyard is composed of cobblestones, silt loams and sandy loam.
