    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Traditions Cabernet Sauvignon features grapes from Milbrandt's estate vineyards in the Wahluke Slope AVA of Eastern Washington. Established in 2006, the Wahluke Slope is a sub-region within the Columbia Valley appellation. Located midway between Seattle and Spokane it is bordered by the Columbia River to the southwest and Hanford Reach National Monument to the east. The climate here is warm enough during the day to fully ripen grapes, yet cool enough at night to ensure bright acids and firm tannins.

    2008 Traditions epitomizes Eastern Washington Cabernet. It is dark, harmonious and complex with black cherry, plum, cassis, vanilla, spicy oak, chocolate, dried herbs and a whiff of mint. While it is soft on the palate there are enough fine-grained tannins to lend an approachable, velvety structure. Open a bottle with roasted meats, stews, lamb kebabs, cassoulet, hamburgers, barbecue, ribs, sloppy joes, tacos or pizza.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Leading with scents reminiscent of evergreen and plum, this wine's savory note carries through its generous black cherry flavors. Rich mocha oak emerges on the palate, in balance with the fruit. A lot of wine for the price. Serve it with tri-tip off the grill.
