Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Tempranillo Wahluke Slope 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of earth, tobacco, and black raspberry fruit, with plenty of underlying oak but it works well here and this seems to be where the house winemaking style is working best. This is bright, firm and focused with plenty of richness and depth to the lovely black raspberry fruit and classic tobacco and herb stem scents. The tannins are well managed but with an appealing edge of austerity and the fruit is super bright showing off some strawberry nuance on the backend and wrapping up with a long, dusty tannic finish. This shows good potential for improvement in the cellar over the short to medium term. 89pts

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
