I like this wine a lot. Two great sites, one grower. Compelling, aromatic dark plum, briny olive, spice cake. Focused, fresh and exciting to drink. Black cherry, deep red rose petals, cool earth. Deep...a seriously good Syrah.

(this is the only high-end K Vintners red fermented in stainless steel; then aged in puncheons, 25% new, for no more than 15 months; from two proximate vineyards, one on sandy river rock, the other on limestone and volcanic broken basalt): Dark red with ruby tones. Pungent aromas of cassis, blueberry, prosciutto, licorice, menthol, mint and minerals. Juicy and intense, conveying an exhilarating combination of sweetness and lively acidity to its red and darker berry and spice flavors. A savory element provides a further leavening influence. Finishes long, with firm but suave tannins. Lovely wine with real personality.

Beginning with a fresh, ripe and juicy core of black plum, savory holiday ham and blackberry fresh from the bush, the 2016 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard wafts with healthy fruit tones and a dusty black pepper note. Rich and inviting in the mouth, the wine is both ripe and tannic on the palate. It's a solid wine for the price and is structured to age just beyond its 10th birthday. Only 1,800 cases made for this value and quality-driven wine.
