Milbrandt Estates Merlot Washington 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

A beautiful dark red color, our 2010 estate bottling of Merlot has aromas of cocoa, cassis and tree ripened plums with notes of maple and vanilla. This wine offers flavors of red berries, cherry and spice. Our Merlot is full-bodied with elegant structure and a lingering, silky finish.

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

Smokey and chocolaty on the nose with oak spice, dried herb, and burnt sugar notes adding some detail though this does veer towards chocolate pudding with some air. Smooth and a touch low acid in style but with enough acid to keep the flavors of black currant well focused. The oak is well integrated on the palate and tannins are nicely judged though they do turn a bit raw and woody on the backend. Lighter bodied than expected, a bit simple but pleasant and with good ripeness but not a lot of meat on the bones. 87pts
