"Our original estate vineyard, McQueen sits atop a ridgeline of fractured basalt at 1,440 feet in elevation. This was the first vineyard to be planted in the Sevein development on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley AVA. We have two different clones of Syrah planted on terraces of southern exposure. Each vine is head trained on a single post of which we had to jack hammer out every individual vine hole. This is easily the most challenging block of vineyard we have ever farmed and cannot wait to release the single vineyard Syrah that will be completely unique."
