One of the Washington wine industry’s largest vineyards is surrounded by some unique history as the Miller family’s Airport Ranches served as a World War II airfield that is believed to have been part of the defense network for the Hanford Site. Marcus Miller’s latest release of Sauvignon Blanc from the 950-acre site soars with gooseberry, lime juice, lemongrass and minty aromas — and there’s a delicious match on the palate. It’s crisp, clean and bone-dry with a finish of Granny Smith apple and fresh thyme.
