2015 The Ramparts

2015 The Ramparts
2015 The Ramparts


Ramparts are defensive walls built to protect something of great value. In this case, the walls are glass and the treasure Grenache. But even within such confines, and with such treasure, rules can be broken. This wine began in the 2013 vintage as a fun-time collaboration between winemaker Ali and grape grower pal, Damon, who wanted to experiment with Grenache. Their goal? Take beautiful fruit, break all the rules, and see what happens. The result? So good that Vikings would scale the ramparts of Paris for it.


What began as an experiment has come into its own this vintage. We added further layers of complexity by blending in more Mourvedre and Counoise, and confining it - protecting it - within the cool walls of a concrete tank for three months. The resulting flavors of dark fruit and wet stone are balanced by a light body with bright hints of fresh plum and lilac. Our Assistant Winemaker, Peter, puts it bluntly: “this wine is tasty as hell!” We’re not the only ones who think so -- 2015 Ramparts earned a gold medal in the 2018 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition.
