From a site on the Wahluke Slope, the 2016 Syrah Milbrandt reveals a ruby/plum color as well as evolved, Graves-like aromas of tobacco, earth, iron, and asphalt, with plenty of earthy dark fruit. It builds nicely with time in the glass, has ripe tannins, and terrific balance, and it’s a steal at the price. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years.
(this is the only high-end K Vintners red fermented in stainless steel; then aged in puncheons, 25% new, for no more than 15 months; from two proximate vineyards, one on sandy river rock, the other on limestone and volcanic broken basalt): Dark red with ruby tones. Pungent aromas of cassis, blueberry, prosciutto, licorice, menthol, mint and minerals. Juicy and intense, conveying an exhilarating combination of sweetness and lively acidity to its red and darker berry and spice flavors. A savory element provides a further leavening influence. Finishes long, with firm but suave tannins. Lovely wine with real personality. (ST)
A blend of two plots, this is fermented as whole clusters in stainless steel and aged in puncheons (25% new) for 15 months. Savory and tarry notes with dried-cherry aromas and flavors, too. There’s freshness and long-form tannin depth from extended maceration here, which holds this wine long and even. Drink this for a decade from now.
Beginning with a fresh, ripe and juicy core of black plum, savory holiday ham and blackberry fresh from the bush, the 2016 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard wafts with healthy fruit tones and a dusty black pepper note. Rich and inviting in the mouth, the wine is both ripe and tannic on the palate. It's a solid wine for the price and is structured to age just beyond its 10th birthday. Only 1,800 cases made for this value and quality-driven wine. (AM)
This wine is a blend of fruit from Northridge (54%) and Clifton Hill vineyards. The aromas offer notes of wet gravel, dried and fresh stem, orange rind, blackberry and dark plum. Sweet, somewhat linear raspberry and darker fruit flavors follow that bring a sense of purity and intent, with slightly tacky-seeming tannins backing it all up. (SS)
