About

92

"The Walls and the talented Ali Mayfield have crafted another great wine with their 2016 ‘The Ramparts’ release. On the nose this takes on nice range, from red fruits to orange rind to smoky tones. The palate shows nice high toned citrus and delicate red fruit overtones from the large percentage of Grenache and touch of Viognier. Lithe and downright sexy, this elegant Rhone style wine is drinking marvelously right now."

91+ Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Bright dark red. Alluring aromas of blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, tropical Venezuelan chocolate, licorice and violet are darker and more vibrant than those of the Concrete Mama from The Rocks. Densely packed but juicy and light on its feet, boasting a penetrating quality and captivating inner-mouth lift to its very primary black fruit flavors. This very bright wine finishes with serious tannic spine and rising length."
