Shimmering, this wine is alive with energy. Vibrant aromatics, red and black fruits and heaps of minerality on a long focused finish. Great today, great in ten years, the Great Milbrandt!

Reviews

  • "92+ points. Bright medium ruby. Musky black cherry and licorice aromas are lifted by a rocky mineral element. In a penetrating, cooler, savory style, with its dark fruit flavors complicated by a note of Espelette pepper. Not a particularly sweet style of Syrah but wonderfully aromatic and primary, with a strong tannic spine that will require time to soften. This serious, very long wine of terroir leaves behind a violet quality." (vinous)
