54. Milbrandt Vineyards 2010 The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope, $25

MilbrandtVineyards_logoFINALThe Milbrandt brothers — Butch and Jerry — are part of a longtime farming family in the Columbia Basin, and they got into growing grapes in the late 1990s. Today, they oversee about 2,000 acres of wine grapes, and their tasting room is in the Yakima Valley town of Prosser. This gorgeous Cab comes from the warm Wahluke Slope, and it opens with aromas of exotic spices, pencil shavings and classic black currants. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced, with flavors of elegant dark fruit, inviting Baker’s chocolate and sturdy tannins. Drink this now or hold onto it for up to 10 years.
