Milbrandt Vineyards 2010 The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon

March 12, 2013 

Appellation: Wahluke Slope

The Milbrandt brothers are part of a longtime farming family in the Columbia Basin, and they got into growing grapes in the late 1990s. This gorgeous Cab comes from the warm Wahluke Slope, and it opens with aromas of exotic spices, pencil shavings and classic black currants. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced, with flavors of elegant dark fruit, inviting Baker’s chocolate and sturdy tannins. Rated “Outstanding” By GreatNorthwestWine.com. (13.5 percent alcohol)

Price: $25.

Cases produced: 300.

Food matches: A T-bone topped with sautéed mushrooms or Gorgonzola will pair beautifully with the sublime red wine. Also consider prime rib or mushroom risotto.
