Fall release for 2018 has started. We’ve added three outstanding wines, all 2016 vintages, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon for you to enjoy.
We finished picking our grapes Tuesday, September 18.
We’re often asked the difference between Shiraz and Syrah. It’s the same wine (grape) but in Australia, Syrah is overwhelmingly (but not exclusively) known as Shiraz. Our purple deep-red 2015 Syrah emits dark fruit flavors and is quite floral, developing peppery and herbaceous notes as it opens. Customers tell us they detect blackcurrant and licorice flavors as it finishes.
“Hence Cellars 2015 syrah starts jumping out of the glass with black plums, pepper spice and a savory-sweet tamarind chutney note. At around $30-35, this is a scrumptious Walla Walla Syrah that is drinking quite well now, while still on the young side. Beautiful balance with the fruit taking the forefront in its youth, but the promise of more savory and complex tertiary flavors lurking in the background. It’s a great value today for a delicious Washington Syrah.” spit bucket.net
“We were stopped in our tracks last week by a terrific wine from a little known producer, the 2015 Hence Cellars Petit Verdot. Impenetrable dark ruby to black color. Mocha, red currant and white pepper spice aromas. Rich and dense on the palate with layers of dark fruit enhanced by lively acidity and supported by dense yet smooth tannins. This wine is simply gorgeous and a steal at this price.” mad wine.com
Hence Cellars is located in the popular south side of Walla Walla. We feature reds and more specific, our Estate Malbec, produced from our Powerline vineyard some of the oldest Malbec vines in the Walla Walla valley.
