Named for the Sentinel Gap, a nearby landmark, this is the top wine from Milbrandt. Supple and complex, it shows a sensuous mix of fruits, ranging from mixed berries into black cherries, plums and cassis. The barrel notes of coffee and toast are carefully worked, and the tannins polished and sleek. A wine that may be savored immediately, or cellared for up to 10 years.
