Helix 2013 SoRho

The three grapes, Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault, were fermented together to produce this adventurous wine inspired by France’s Southern Rhone Valley. A brisk pour into the glass stirs up aromas of blueberries, pomegranate, cut cherries and red meat rubbed with herbs and a pinch of pepper. Flavors of dried black cherry, a hint of citrus and strawberry, leather, tobacco and herbs dominate the palate. The tannins grab hold for the finish leaving behind a taste of cherry-almond with just a tiny dash of lingering cinnamon. Enjoy with beef short ribs, sausage, lentils and lamb.

Helix 2014 Viognier

Stillwater Creek Vineyard in 2014 offered us an opportunity to shift our Condrieu (Northern Rhone) inspired 100% Viognier southward to Cotes du Rhone where Viognier is blended with Roussanne. On a lark, while loading our truck with Viognier, I accepted an offer for a one-third ton of Roussanne which turned into a fun little adventure and resulted in this lovely wine. It has a brilliant straw hue with honeysuckle, tangerine, mineral and faint herbal and floral aromatics that blossom on a smooth, unctuous medium weight palate.  Infused delicate jasmine, a hint of bee’s wax, a very thin slice of pear and stone fruit, apricot and white peach, add to this fun balanced equation.

Helix 2012 Sangiovese

This is a powerful yet polite Sangiovese. First pour reveals dark cherry and roasted tomatoes emerging from a bed of black soil that is soon displaced by more elegant loam with young leather. The bouquet and aromatics are reflected on the palate where they embrace an exciting acidity that is mellowed by beautiful soft tannins and then engages with an intriguing accompaniment of coriander, plum sauce and black licorice. It displays the vigor and strength that we have come to expect from Stillwater Creek Sangiovese.- Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

There is no doubt this is the most relaxed Cabernet Sauvignon that we have ever produced. Fruit forward with well-worn khakis. Lofty aromatics are full of cherry and red plum, swirling with whiffs of sweet oak spice followed by a paper-thin slice of steak tartar. With its very soft tannins, the wine enters the mouth ever so gently yet with lively acidity that elevates a delightful blend of Chelan cherry, plum, currant and a hint of marionberry tagged with a
beautiful lingering finish of bright cherry accompanied by brown baking spices and light oak. Drink now and purchase by the case! ~ Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2012 Merlot

This is a sturdy Merlot, possessing a deep ruby color with a complex aromatic mix of dark fruit, incense, garden soil, bay leaf, chocolate and a breath of vanilla. Black currant and cherry charge the palate, riding over a texture of medium-round/slightly chewy tannins while chasing dried plums dipped in dark chocolate with drops of toffee and sprinkled with savory spice. You might think twice about marinara and go for the beef. ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2012 Syrah

Cellaring in 100% neutral oak permits the syrah to speak to its true character. Allowing for some breathing time, our 2012 Helix Syrah, with its rich garnet color, brings forth its Northern Rhone character, displaying aromas of light smoky gaminess, violets, attar, and a trace of lavender, baked blueberries and white pepper. The syrah rushes the entrance with black olive, blueberry, baked fig and plum, and mildly scours the palate with fine grain tannins, a scratch of pepper with smear of boysenberry. Pairs wonderfully with grilled lamb or your meanest barbeque. ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Helix 2013 Pomatia

Our 2013 Helix Pomatia has a lovely rich, sweet yet spicy nose of black currant, plum, cardamom and violets that will keep you pleasantly captivated as you and your  significant other prepare your favorite midweek dinner. Its velvety texture bathes the palate with luscious black cherry and succulent dried dark fruit that’s stimulated by a soft yet vibrant acidity. On the finish, a gentle wave of focused fruit is a bobbing streak of perfumed wood spice impregnated with specs of loam. This is my favorite Pomatia to date!

Helix 2015 Chardonnay

Stainless steel has brought to prominence a dramatic balance of mineral and fruit gifted by Stillwater Creek’s fractured basalt soils, high on the Royal Slope near the top of the Frenchman Hills. Wonderful aromas of ripe white pears and apple blossoms emerge from the glass with notes of citric and a touch of beeswax. Its perfect medium-plus body and acidity deliver clean flavors of pear with a slice of golden delicious apple, and a blade of lemon grass supported by a flinty/basalt minerality.  This is best served a touch on the cooler side. Pair with miso glazed halibut, shell fish or goat and soft cow cheeses.—Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
