This is a carefully crafted blend meant to express the different aspects of the vineyard, while also featuring the interplay of these classic varieties.

Think

Dusk in the high garrigues with spring breezes
Of flower starts—
Clay baked under a high sun

Winemaker’s Notes

A panoply of exotic aromas. The 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.

"The 2018 GSM WeatherEye Vineyard is also terrific, with lots of Bing cherry and blueberry-like fruits as well as notes of white pepper and spiced meat, medium to full body, good mid-palate density, and a great finish. Based on 42% Grenache, 38% Mourvèdre, and 20% Syrah, it’s a sure bet that it will drink nicely on release as well as over the following decade."

"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 brand new vineyard. I’ve no doubt the best is still to come as well!"
