Yakima Valley vintner/grower Marcus Miller continues to release stellar, consumer-friendly wines under his family’s second label, inspired by a 70-year-old birch tree that stands proudly within the 900-acre vineyard. It comes across with a lighter styled expression of Cab, opening with enticing aromas of cassis and blueberry backed by complex tones of vanilla, coffee and sweet herbs. Inside, there’s a great structure with Rainier cherry and sweet plums flavors. Black olive and blueberry carry into a finish of more cherry.

Rating: Outstanding!
