92 International Wine Review

Milbrandt 2018 Sentinel Wahluke Slope ($55) 92 The 2018 Sentinel is a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec, 9% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Sourced from the Northridge, Clifton and Ravenscliff vineyards, it offers aromas of ripe and juicy black and red berry fruit with hints of toasted oak. It is nicely concentrated on the palate revealing flavors of black cherry and chocolate. It is a wine of considerable complexity with good tannic grip and a clean persistent finish. Although high in alcohol (15% ABV), it is well integrated.
