K Syrah Columbia Valley Milbrandt Wahluke Slope 2001

Member Review by erickgrau:

Back in 2003-2004 this wine was bursting with smoky blueberries in the palette. I had a bottle hidden from me left in my cellar and decided to open her up. While its still drinkable, it has lost much of what it was rated for in early 2001-2002. If you have any left in your collection, DRINK UP! or use for wonderful lamb stew :)

Farming is in our blood. Our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles all made their living working the land. Eastern Washington is in our blood. We came here as young children and have always called it home. When we planted our first vines in 1997 we were entering uncharted territory. Today, we farm 13 distinct estate vineyard sites totaling nearly 1600 acres. Our grapes are purchased by some of the most prestigious wineries in the state. Our own winery, launched in 2005, produces highly-individualistic wines from our estate and neighboring vineyards. Jim McFerran, one of the foremost viticulturists in Washington, joined us back in 1997 to help with the intricacies of planting. We were very careful about matching the right variety to the right site. Our goal was to be the best growers in the state. From the start, demand for our grapes was immediate and overwhelming. As farmers, there is nothing more satisfying than controlling the quality and style of your product from start to finish. In June of 2007, under the direction of veteran winemaker Gordon Hill, we launched the Milbrandt Vineyards label. Read less
