Milbrandt Vineyards The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Wahluke Slope Washington 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth and rich with classic Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of ripe plum, blackberry and subtle notes of mint. Layered dark cherry and mocha flavors, paired with gentle tannins and a full luscious finish, make our Cabernet Sauvignon and impeccable pairing with roasted meats, cassoulet or barbecue." -Winery

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

A hint of mint chocolate on the nose of this wine alongside the black cherry fruit. In the mouth it's sharp and tart with red fruit flavors, mostly cherry alongside the black fruit and chocolate notes as well. Due to the cooler climate, this wine gets a bit of an herbal note to it as well, but the fruit certainly is dominant here.

Fairly big on the nose showing assertive oak base notes, a little nutty and with a lot of nutella accents with some nice herbal framed and almost bell pepper inflected black currant fruits. Broad and a bit fleshy in the mouth but nicely balanced with an easy going personality. This shows some tea, thyme, and chocolate nuance early on the palate followed by black cherry and black currant fruit. the tannins are firm but well managed leading into a moderately long finish that shows a creamy edge. Nicely varietal and easy to drink. 88pts

Full-bodied and complex. Aromas of black cherry, cassisand a hint of anise give way to velvety tannins and a generous, fruit-driven finish.

Delicious, delicious, delicious. Did I mention that the Milbrandt Vineyards 2009 The Estates Cab is delicious? Because it is. A striking dark red in color, this wine is to die for. Spicy, but not especially so, this medium-bodied wine is bursting with dried fruits and just a hint of smokiness and is well-balanced by the delicious tannins. Did I mention it was good?

Black cherry fruit with a bit of black olive and a hint of smoke lead quickly into an oaky finish with plenty of roasted coffee and tobacco flavors. A lot of barrel, but the fruit is simple, not distinctively varietal.

For our 2006 Estates Cabernet, winemaker Gordy Hill selected lots from some of his favorite blocks at our Northridge and Clifton Hill vineyards. He also blended back small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec for color, depth, plumpness and complexity. The wine is dark garnet and filled with blackberries, cassis, vanilla, maple and smoke. The flavors are intense and the tannins are soft and polished. With its deep fruit and generous mouth-feel, this is textbook Wahluke Slope Cabernet. Composition Cabernet Sauvignon (79%), Petit Verdot (14%) Malbec (7%)
