“Milbrandt struck twice at the top of our list of great Washington Cabs, and this is a great bargain to boot. It was among the most expressive wines we tasted in this judging. On the nose, it provides aromas of brown sugar, poached plum on parchment paper, white pepper, blackberry and freshly ground coffee. It is an elegant wine on the palate, with flavors of President plum, a hint of chocolate and a dash of spice. Perfectly balanced acidity and tannin meld with a touch of oak in this delicious wine that can be enjoyed any day of the week.” -March 2013
