With 3-foot by 3-foot spacing and 4,840 vines per acre, the 2 acre Sur Echalas Vineyard of Syrah and Grenache is the highest density planting in the Walla Walla Valley, and one of the highest in North America. The self-nourishing interrelationship of earth, plants and animals has been central to vigneron Christophe Baron's farming philosophy ever since he pioneered biodynamic farming in the Walla Walla Valley in 2002.

Wine AdvocateAged in puncheon and neutral oak and bottled in August of 2014, the 2013 Grenache Sur Echalas Vineyard sports a transparent ruby color to go with classic Grenache notes of wild strawberries, peppery herbs, licorice, hints of iron and good minerality that comes out more on the finish. Similar in style to the 2012, with a savory edge, this medium to full-bodied beauty has fine tannin, a supple, sexy texture and a great finish. It should hit prime time around age 4-6 and drink nicely through 2028.
