Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Petit Sirah Wahluke Slope 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Chocolate, plum, rose petal and white pepper come together on the nose. On entry this is clear, firm and young with a nice blend of richness, power and juicy transparency. There's a little meaty edge to this in the mouth and again while it's a touch simple it captures the fruit of the variety quite well without over doing it. Candied red cherry and a bit of rhubarb fruit emerges on the backend, and this is actually in a very bright, red fruited style possibly due to the vintage. A little chunky in the mouth but the moderately long finish shows fine balance and precision. 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
