This wine is dedicated to Theresa and Sam Laurella, whose family has been making wine in the Walla Walla Valley since the early 1900ís. Samís first crush was over sixty years ago and today he continues his winemaking tradition by helping at Saviah Cellars.
Our Laurella is styled in a super-Tuscan fashion. This classy blend begins with a wonderful bouquet of juicy red and black fruits, earth and saddle leather. The rich savory flavors linger beautifully in the mouth for an exceptionally long smooth finish.!
