Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Brandlin opens with a cassis, boysenberry, and pencil shavings with hint blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied and medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, plush, and savory. The flavor profile is blueberry and stony minerality blend with notes of cedar and black currant. We also detected some hints of menthol and blackberry in the mix. The finish is dry, and its flavors and integrated dusty tannins, are very lengthy and pronounced. The Tasting Panel would decant this Cab with a very long time and then serve it with a well-marbled ribeye or seared duck breast. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Nestled high on the ridgeline of the Mayacamas mountain range, our Mount Veeder estate is known as a source for wines of rich texture and mouth-filling flavor. Upon first sip, the 2019 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit forward with blackberry, and boysenberry notes intertwined with a bouquet of allspice, cardamom, and black tea. On the finish, savory hints of cassis, tobacco, and olive surf gracefully on the palate and are rounded out by an inviting bed of rich but supple tannins.
