This wine is dedicated to Theresa and Sam Laurella, whose family has been making wine in the Walla Walla Valley since the early 1900’s when Theresa’s grandfather Joseph Spagnuolo migrated from Italy. Sam’s first crush was sixty years ago and today he continues his winemaking tradition by helping at Saviah Cellars. The family’s original wine press survived the prohibition era and is proudly displayed at Saviah Cellars.
This is a luscious, powerful wine with concentrated flavors and a beautiful inky color. Our Laurella greets you with aromas of dark, juicy fruit which are even more pronounced on the palate. Its complex flavors are balanced with toasty oak and are followed by a smooth long finish.
