Milbrandt Vineyards Syrah Yakima Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2005 Legacy Syrah is dense, rich, juicy and unabashedly varietal. The wine is large-framed with ripe fruit and relatively soft tannins. The aromas are dominated by lavender, boysenberry, tobacco, blackberries, leather, coffee, vanilla and white pepper. The texture exhibits a broad lushness that is nicely supported by fine natural acidity and soft 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

Love it! Got this vino as a surprise gift for Xmas, and am out to get a case for the New Year ( at $20 a pop that means to savor over the next year, not drink 12/31. Took half an hour for it to open up, but wow! Interesting red tastes a little flat at first that sneaks up on your palette and tastes great with King Salmon, butter, garlic, and a delicious mixed green beet salad. Four out of 5 ommmmms.
