Wine Advocate 88 points - A blend of 53% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, Spring Valley’s 2008 Uriah reveals smoky, saline, slightly sweaty notes manifesting a degree of reduction but adding punch and invigoration of a core of dark berry steeped with sage and horehound, and mingled with rhubarb. The bittersweet, candied expression of resinous herbal extracts is arguably somewhat at odds with the wine’s tart aspects, but the ensuing tension fits a tight underlying sense of tannin, leading to a gripping if also chewy and mildly discordant finish. (A 2009 version was one of three Spring Valley wines to exhibit stubborn reduction on the occasion of my tasting session there, but it also suffered from rather drying wood tannins. I found the 2006 rather drying as well, its contrast of confectionary and vegetal elements irreconcilable; and a 1999 tasted alongside struck me as well past its prime.) (Mar 2013)

Producer
Spring Valley Vineyard was established in 1993 on wheat land in Spring Valley, Walla Walla County; land that has been farmed by the Corkrum family for five generations. Evaluation of the terroir revealed an excellent environment for growing wine grapes. With elevation between 1,200 and 1,500 feet, today Spring Valley maintains a forty-acre vineyard made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, CabernetFranc, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Syrah. Placed on a south-southwest facing hillside, the vines follow the north-south slope of the hills in vertical rows. This orientation, coupled with the declination of slope affords the vines optimal sunshine, cold air, drainage, and takes advantage of the reflective nature of the surrounding hills. Following the tradition of Uriah, Frederick and Nina Lee Corkrum, Shari Corkrum Derby and her husband Dean Derby continue to operate the wheat, vineyard and winery. Deans brother, Gaynor Derby, manages the vineyard. The hard work, traditional values and deep family ties that have kept the ranch going got over 100 years is mirrored in Spring Valley Vineyards signature offerings.
