Fourth-generation Columbia Valley farmers Butch and Jerry Milbrandt honed their passion and knowledge of the land growing apples and tomatoes, but they knew that their farm was meant for grape cultivation and great wines. In 1997 they embarked on a journey to transform their land to vineyards, and in so doing became instrumental in the establishment of the Wahluke Slope and Ancient Lakes AVAs. Today, the winery has fifteen vineyards in the Columbia Valley and is widely regarded as one of the premium producers of fine wine in the region.
Today’s Merlot is blended with 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and is sourced from 3 vineyards in the Columbia Valley AVA: Sundance, Rosebud, and Northridge. Aged for 14 months in neutral American oak barrels, it is indeed rich and silky, with aromas and flavors of cassis, black raspberry, and black cherry, with pliant tannins and a long, satisfying finish.

91 points, #77 Top-100 Wines of 2019, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Plush red fruit, herb and eucalyptus aromas lead to scrumptious fruit flavors. It possesses a compelling sense of balance—a superb value that brings a sense of purity not always seen at this price.” (8/1/19)
90 points, James Suckling:
“Ripe red and dark plums with notes of toasty oak spice, all delivered in an attractively modern mode. The palate has medium body and ripe, even-paced blueberries that deliver a handy punch.” (4/26/19)
