Milbrandt Vineyards 2014 Katherine Leone Vineyard Single Vineyard Series Syrah, Wahluke Slope, $42

By on November 8, 2017

Katherine Leone is a vineyard perched on the eastern edge of the Wahluke Slope, overlooking the Columbia River and within view of dramatic Sentinel Gap, is well established as a top site for Syrah. This superb example leads with aromas of eucalyptus and forest floor, followed by flavors of ripe blackberry, Marionberry, roasted meat and chocolate-covered cherries. The creamy texture is balanced by rich, precise tannins that give way to a long finish. It won gold and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival Wine Competition.
