From: Walla Walla, WA
Taste & Critical Acclaim:
Coming from Blocks 30 and 31 of this esteemed vineyard, this wine has appealing aromas of violet, parsley, purple fruit and fresh herbs that rise up from the glass. The palate is focused and fresh, starting out seeming lighter styled and then filling out over time. It brings a compelling sense of intensity and freshness. This wine could only come from this one vineyard and also from this one producer. What more could one ask for from a wine? Put it on the dinner table to see it at its best. - Sean P.

The 2017 Damavian is just as impressive as the 2016, reflecting, for starters, the consistency of Jeff Lindsay-Thorsen’s winemaking, which is gentle and hands-off, a healthy rendering of whole clusters, cool, ambient-yeast fermentations. This is a very cool expression of Les Collines, tense and endlessly flavorful, with notes of blackberries and peppercorn, violets and smoke, all coming in generous, luscious waves. It feels elegant and seamless, poised between assertive flavors and delicate structure. W&S 95 pt
