“Velvety, round and generous, this layers ripe black fruit flavors with hints of black olive, rare roast beef and espresso, lingering on the polished and expressive finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot.” -H.S. November 15, 2013

“Coming all from the Northridge Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, it possesses beautiful black raspberry, creme de cassis, creamy licorice and jam covered toast-styled aromatics along with a medium to full-bodied, supple, elegant profile on the palate.”   -Jeb Dunnuck, June 2013

“The Milbrandt brothers began planting wine grapes in 1997 on the Wahluke Slope. Northridge, one of the highest-elevation vineyards on the slope, is Milbrandt’s top estate source. This Cabernet Sauvignon (with a bit of Malbec and Petit Verdot) is named after Sentinel Gap, a nearby land formation that provides passage for the Columbia River to come down alongside and around the Wahluke Slope. It’s a hedonistic wine with aromas of Belgian chocolate, black cherry, sweet herbs and fresh-from-the-oven snickerdoodle cookies. On the palate, the gorgeous flavors of dark chocolate, black plum and black cherry are beautifully framed by silky, fine-grained tannins. This is a wine best enjoyed in the next five years.”  -Dec. 20, 2013
