94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Stanley Groovy is an eclectic blend of 28% Touriga Nacional, 18% Syrah, 15% Souzao, and the rest a mix of Tinta Cao, Merlot, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Cabernet Franc, and a few others. It sports a deep ruby/plum color as well as a juicy, delicious, medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded style to go with a great nose of red, blue, and black fruits as well as spicy oak, tobacco, and peppery herbs. It's balanced, has silky tannins, and is just one heck of a delicious red to drink over the coming 4-5 years or more."
We could give you 100 guesses about which grape varieties make up Stanley Groovy and we’re sure you wouldn’t guess it. We wouldn't either! This unique blend of Portuguese and international grapes–is the only wine of its kind from Washington...and likely anywhere else, too.
But unique isn’t enough. It has to be yummy and after one sip we determined, yum. Bold and packed with flavor while also sprightly and fun, there are blue, red, and black fruits wrapped around licorice, espresso, and a sweet-smoky-mineral note. Just screaming for a grilled hanger steak.
The Walls asks, “Who is Stanley Groovy? Some describe him as a delightful, yet regular looking guy. Others portray him as more complex than he lets on, with a hidden ‘groovy’ mentality on the inside. These are apt descriptors for our mascot here at The Walls, but also describe the wine we named after him. This blend of intriguing red Iberian varietals from Red Mountain, is named Stanley Groovy because just like Stanley, this wine has a groovy way about it, so ‘groovy’ you will never confuse it with any other wine.
