Waters was founded in 2005 by Jason Huntley and winemaker Jamie Brown. They released their first wines in 2006 and a year later opened a 5,000 square foot sustainable winery. Their winemaking is influenced by a preference for old world style wines that emphasize the terroir of Walla Walla Valley, where they own several vineyards. Their range of wines includes small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, single vineyard Syrah, Interlude a Bordeaux style blend, Viognier and Rose.

The Waters 2009 Syrah Forgotten Hills illustrated the fascinating but not especially ripe array of flavors that proprietor-winemaker Jamie Brown evidently prizes. Smelling mouthwateringly like lentils in ham stock laced with sage and black tea, its further intimations of red fruits usher in a tart-edged cherry and rhubarb on a grainy palate, leading to a persistently interactive and for red wine downright bracing finish. ?We had (relatively) large clusters and high skin-to-juice ratio here, yet you get strength of character,? notes Brown. And it?s a character, I hasten to add, that won?t be everybody?s cup of Syrah infusion! It should however be very interesting to follow for at least the next 3-5 years.
