Milbrandt Vineyards Mosaic Wahluke Slope Clifton Vineyards 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

67% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre. Cofermented Smells like the Grenache dark with deep aromas of Bon Mamon raspberry preserves and spicy herbs layered under chocolate oak. Very bright on entry, zesty and with good energy in the mouth, which is transparent and juicy showing nice spicy herb inflected red berry fruit and edgy little tannins. Wild cherry, plum and black spice flavors emerge on the backend with a hint of leather on the moderately long finish. A very nicely done Rhone styled blend, perhaps a bit chunky but well balanced and attractive. 88pts

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
