Aged 16 months in neutral French oak. Blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah.
This is a carefully crafted blend meant to express the different aspects of the vineyard, while also featuring the interplay of these classic varieties.
A panoply of exotic aromas.
High notes: red cherry, bright raspberry, crushed herbs. Classic Grenache tales.
Bass notes: smoked blueberries, toasted orange peel, dark peppered meats sprinkled with candied violet.
The mind is pulled in different directions with each inhale: dried herbs...wet clay...an echo of eucalyptus...
It all culminates in a stirring finish: volume/amplitude - structure/mineral crispness - length/echoes of the contributions and balance of the three varieties.

Fruit for this inaugural wine comes from a new site up and over the top of Red Mountain and down onto the north side. Grenache makes up 42%, followed by Mourvèdre (38%) and Syrah. The aromas bring notes of pomegranate, mulberry, crushed rock, savory herb and black pepper. It's a big mouthful of a wine, rich, layered and intense, with earthshaking intensity and plenty of tension. There's impressive tannin and an abundance of acidity to enliven it all. The fruit-filled finish seems near endless. It's a new benchmark for Rhône-style blends in Washington. Best after 2025.

A stunner of a wine that is just as beautiful in the glass as it is on the nose and palate. This beautiful GSM blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah from the WeatherEye Vineyard in Red Mountain explodes with fragrances of fresh red cherries, black raspberries, chopped mint, dried hay and wet earth. The nose has so much complexity, showing earthiness without becoming overpowering. The experience continues as the wine hits the back of your tongue, with flavors of wild thimbleberries, chocolate covered orange peel and a hint of black-peppered salami coming from its decadent Syrah component. The palate is very multi-layered with loads of tension and robustness. Needs a few years in the bottle to settle down and will cellar for 20+ years. Highly recommended.

Unquestionably, one of the most exciting new projects in Washington State is that of Liminal, which focuses on the newly planted WeatherEye Vineyard located at the very top of Red Mountain. A collaboration between Ryan Johnson and Cam Myhrvold, who managed the vineyard, and Marty Taucher and Chris Peterson who handle the winemaking, this is a star-studded team. As I hope the reviews show, these are awesome wines, which is even more impressive given that this is a brand new vineyard. I’ve no doubt the best is still to come as well!

The 2018 GSM WeatherEye Vineyard offers up an incredibly complex nose that includes lots of red and blue fruits, white pepper, and sandalwood as well as a medium to full-bodied, supple, seamless style on the palate. A blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Syrah, and 20% Mourvèdre, brought up in neutral oak, it would stand up to any top Châteauneuf du Pape out there.
