About Stoneridge Vineyard:
Alluvial fan gravel bed, the site rests above the flood plain of the Columbia River. Under the topsoil is a layer of caliche and basalt 6-12’’ deep, creating a calcium and iron rich media that forces roots to struggle. The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Ratings & Reviews


99 Points - & #41 of Top 100 of 2020 - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The flagship release, the 2016 Syrah Royal City is all from the Stoneridge Vineyard on the Royal Slope (not far from the Frenchman Hills). It was not destemmed and spent 27 months in 60% new French oak. Offering a sensational bouquet of blackcurrants, baking chocolate, beef blood, toasted spice, and loamy earth, it builds slowly, with full-bodied richness, silky tannins, beautiful power and elegance, and a great, great finish, it's another magical wine from this team. 572 cases." - Jeb Dunnuck (April 2020)
97 Points - James Suckling:
"Another mind bender and intense with leafy, red-bean, green coffee-bean and dried-strawberry character. Great palate. Medium to full body. A night-long bottle. Drink now." - James Suckling (June 2020)
