Maryhill Winery 2015 Northridge Vineyard Syrah, Wahluke Slope, $40

By on June 14, 2018

One of Jerry Milbrandt’s prized sites, Northridge Vineyard on the warm Wahluke Slope, is the source of these premium grapes that resulted in this best-of-class winner. It’s a Syrah that shows off delectable blackberries, infused with peppery blueberries. The acid is spot-on and shares the background with the most delicate (yet present) oak influence. This won a gold medal and best of class at the 2018 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
