Here we are for another AMAZING Pick of the Week on this 2015 Brandline Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon out of the Mount Veeder region of Napa Valley.
The winemaker for Brandlin is Steven Rogstad who just so happens to be on Episode 41 of the Mr. Wine Guy Podcast, set to debut this coming Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
Steven is also the winemaker for Cuvaison which is a family owned, 50 year old winery in the Los Carneros region of Napa Valley. In our podcast we talk about his ability to craft wines Bordeaux style, mountain-driven wines, all the way to beautiful and sexy Chardonnay’s and Pinot Noir’s.
His Brandlin Cabernet is a Bordeaux blend that can stand next to any mountain wine that I could imagine, blind or not, and is sure to please on any day and any occasion you decide to open.
It's all about the taste
The blend in this 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is:
77% Cabernet Sauvignon
4% Cabernet Franc
This Cabernet is one of the most beautiful wines I’ve been privileged to feature, showing off a bright beautiful display of sensuous regal maraschino cherries.
The nose on this wine boasts of rich acidity and bodacious black fruit, while hints of sweetened black current sinfully tease the senses with seduction.
The palate of this wine is massive with an aggressive amount of tannins, crumbled mocha, and a sense of place and terroir that tantalize the mind with the varied soils and minerality present.
Pair this wine with food respectably and decant for a good 2-4 hours to really expatiate all the things this wine is begging to offer.
