Tasting Notes

66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. Sourced from the best of our estate grown fruit, this ultra-premium Bordeaux-style blend showcases a seamless integration of fruit, tannin, and oak. Interwoven layers of cherry, cranberry, orange zest, leather, tobacco, and spice evolve into a full, broad, and round palate. The structural framework of tightly knit fine-grained tannins carries through to a long-lasting finish.

Other Notes

This wine pays tribute to our great-grandfather, H. Lloyd Miller, a successful businessman and pioneer of the Yakima Valley, who founded our family farm in the early 1900’s. He is considered the father of the Roza Irrigation Canal, which supplies water to 72,000 acres of farmland in our valley. His entrepreneurial spirit provides a great source of inspiration to our family as we strive to carry on his legacy.
