STANLEY GROOVY

Portuguese Varietal Blend | Red Mountain AVA

Who is Stanley Groovy? Some describe him as a delightful, yet regular looking guy. Others portray him as more complex than he lets on, with a hidden “groovy” mentality on the inside.


These are apt descriptors for our mascot here at The Walls, but also describe the wine we named after him. This blend of intriguing red Iberian varietals from Red Mountain, is named Stanley Groovy because just like Stanley, this wine has a groovy way about it, so “groovy” you will never confuse it with any other wine.

93 POINTS, WASHINGTON WINE BLOG
"Red Wine-espresso bean and dried herbs combine with shades of black licorice on the nose. The palate is deep, rich and highly concentrated with medium tannins that line the core of black and blue fruits. Rich, showing good decadence and length, this beautiful new wine will cellar well over the next decade. Drink 2020-2032. 93 points."
18.5/20 POINTS, RAND SEALEY
This blend of 32% Touriga Nacional, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Syrah, 13% Grenache, 12% Tinta Cao and 5% Souzāo offers a purplish ruby color and rich aromas of raspberries, cherries and black currants, with scents of wild black roses, mulberry, sweet tobacco, Spanish lavender and smoldering incense. The flavors, as well, are distinctive, with generous yet focused red and black fruits that are intermixed with licorice, cacao, chicory coffee and Red Mountain scorched earth. The back reveals roasted berries and nuts, kirsh and charcoal. and the finish is Port-like, yet dry, with grainy tannins on the lingering toasty finish.
