K syrah milbrandt

Syrah, "Milbrandt" 2013

K Vintners

Dense and chewy, a multi-layered explosion of cassis, wild blackberry, sandal leather and Asian spice. The power is all in the flavor and the texture is pure satin. The most rich Milbrandt to date!

Reviews

  • "92 points. A killer value, the 2013 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard (which is on the Whaluke Slope) offers a Rhone-like feel in its black raspberry, raspberry, spice, garrigue and peppery aromatics. Medium-bodied, silky, supple and downright sexy, drink it over the coming 4-5 years." (Wine Advocate)
  • "91+ points. Dark medium ruby. Distinctly purple aromas of dark berries, licorice pastille and violet; smells like a barrel sample! Tactile and very intense if a bit youthfully simple, with the black fruit flavors conveying a youthfully sappy quality. Finishes chewy and long but unformed, with serious tannic clout calling for patience." (vinous)
