Spring Valley Vineyard is situated 12 miles northeast of Walla Walla, spread amid the picturesque wheat fields of southeastern Washington with the Blue Mountains providing the backdrop. The terroir demonstrates a mesoclimate that is ideally suited for growing wine grapes. The unique microclimate of Spring Valley also allows the grapes to develop their own distinct characteristics. Initially, we planted a 2 acre block of Merlot in 1993 on a south-southwest facing hillside. The vines follow the north-south slope of the hills in vertical rows. This orientation, coupled with the declination of slope, allows the vines optimal use of sunshine, air drainage, and the reflective nature of the surrounding wheat fields. Great care is taken when caring for the vineyard. Under Gaynor Derby’s direction, every grape is tended by hand, including crop thinning, leaf pulling, and harvesting, not to mention hand-burying individual canes to protect them from the cold in the winters of southeastern Washington.

  • Al, I find most red wines, regardless of the maker, from Spring Mountain District to be noticeably tannic.  Maybe Keenan is the most obvious.  My research is limited to just a few bottles each year.Keenan has two Merlot bottlings--Carneros and Napa Valley.The Carneros bottling is closer to your expectation for Merlot--a softer wine with "sweeter...

Bought by Robert Keenan in 1974, the estate is historic, once housing another winery before it fell into shambles after Prohibition. Keenan restored the historic stone winery for visitors to appreci... Read More

  •  I swear, this wine is like a "baby Cabernet Sauvignon."  I get a suggestion of Cab cassis on entry, some leather, maybe, unsweetened chocolate.  The Keenan Napa Valley bottling often has VERY SERIOUS tannin, but this one has much more sedate tannin.  That suggests to me that the source of many (more than ususal) of the grapes that went into thi...

  • Spring Valley Vyd. Uriah 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a beautiful garnet in the glass, with a slight hint of amber along the edges. The nose presents aromas of blackberry, leather and mint, with just a bit of black pepper spice. The taste is just lovely, with a good bit of black licorice and blackberry up front that transitions nicely to some notes of mint and black pepper midpalate. ... Read More

  • Spring Valley Vineyard Uriah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass, with a nose of leather, black cherry and a hint of mint. The taste is just lovely, with a rush or ripe fruit up front, blackberry, cherry and plum that transitions effortlessly to some lovely mineral notes of dusty limestone and dried herbs midpalate. The finish is quite nice, with soft tannins that ... Read More
