Milbrandt Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Legacy 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The Wahluke Slope is Washington's warmest growing region. It produces wines with great concentration and texture. Our 2005 Legacy Cabernet is deeply colored and blessed with aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, currant, sweet chocolate, allspice and toasty oak. The flavors are rich, bold, balanced and layered with cassis, sweet oak and spice. The finish is long and supported by finely polished tannins.

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

Consistent with previous tasting note. Somewhat bitter on the finish, however, but that could be because it followed the sweeter Kiona Cab.

Very nice integration of fruit, alcohol, acidity and tannins. Black cherry with a bit of pepper on the nose, with nice cherry flavors attacking the palate. Smooth drinking, with a bit of tannic dryness on the finish.

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is made in a similar style, slightly austere but with good fruit and balance.

This is really solidly made and appealing wine, which nicely combines lush, chocolaty barrel flavors with penetrating Cabernet fruit. Cassis, cherry and sweet plum create a substantial fruit center, and itrsquo;s swathed in a roasted coffee and mocha wrapping. Try it with a grilled steak, or better yet, a rich moleacute; sauce.
