Description 

K Vintners "Milbrandt" Wahluke Slope Syrah
Bright, dark red. Dark cherry, red berries, sexy smoke and underbrush on the nose. Sweet and lightly saline on the palate, showing moderate lift to its fruit flavors of cherry and dark raspberry. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins. In the absence of Charles Smith, I sampled his extensive line-up of K Vintners wines in his airy new facility on the northern edge of Boeing Field in Seattle with Brennon Leighton, who makes wines under his own B. Leighton label and is co-winemaker with Smith on the Sixto wines. (Leighton works for Smith and is also a partner on several of their labels.) Leighton emphasized that all of Smiths contracts for the K wines are by the acre, which is still the exception in Washington. Leighton noted that the are a bit coarser than the Two thousand fourteen was an even warmer vintage, but Smith "made adjustments in the vineyards, leaving larger canopies and getting more shade on the fruit." This has long been a fascinating collection of wines encompassing a wide range of distinctive terroirs
