The 2008 Uriah Red Wine is a blend of 53% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Franc with the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec aged for 18 months in 60% new French oak. Aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, herbs, cassis, and black currant lead to a firm, elegant, balanced wine in need of greater depth. Drink it through 2020.

The Merlot-based Uriah includes 36% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec from the estate vineyards. Perhaps due to its youth, the wine has a bit too much heat and sharpness for its fruit. Spring Valley seems to be sacrificing terroir for sheer power. It’s plenty ripe, but the fruit flavors are blocky, with noticeable volatility.

This has density without excess weight, showing a real depth to its cherry, cinnamon, almond and cedar flavors, lingering against crisp tannins. Impressive for its deft balance and the way the finish sneaks up on you. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2013 through 2016.

A Merlot blend named after Uriah Corkrum. Uriah was the grandfather of Shari Corkrum Derby. Born in Walla Walla on June 1, 1866, he began farming on his own during the 1880 s.
