Winemaker's Notes:

Traditions Merlot is a deep garnet red featuring aromas of ripe fruit with rich notes of vanilla, mocha and caramel. The flavors are ripe and generous with berries, cocoa and vanilla. The wine is very approachable and polished with velvety tannins.

Blend: 76% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc

About Milbrandt:

Butch and Jerry Milbrandt planted their first vineyard in 1997. In the ensuing decade, Milbrandt Vineyards earned a reputation for growing some of Washington State's finest grapes. These grapes have found their way into many of Washington's most sought-after wines and the Milbrandt name and vineyards are featured on many prestigious labels.

In 2006, under the talented direction of winemaker Gordon Hill, they began crafting signature wines using selected grapes from their reputable vineyards. Milbrandt's first wines were released in June 2007. The tradition for excellence established in their vineyards is inherent in every bottle of Milbrandt Vineyards wine.
