90 POINTS Wine Spectator

“Bright, spicy and polished, with pretty pear and floral flavors under a cloud of clove and green peppercorn, lingering with freshness and vibrancy. Drink now through 2019. 5,300 cases made.” – December 2014

“The Milbrandts didn’t reach far from their Wahluke Wine Company facility in Mattawa, Wash., for these grapes — Clifton, Clifton Hill, Talcott and Wahluke Slope vineyards — and the results showcase dark purple fruit from beginning to end. Aromas include Chukar Cherry, maple syrup, toffee and bay rum, followed by flavors of boysenberry, cordial cherry, French roast coffee and graphite. Approachable tannins and bright acidity should make this an easy match with Cornish game hen, gnocchi or shepherd’s pie.” -Dec. 26, 2013
