In our podcast we talk about his ability to craft wines Bordeaux style, mountain-driven wines. Some of his eins include beautiful and sexy Chardonnay’s and Pinot Noir’s.
His Brandlin Cabernet is a Bordeaux blend that can stand next to any mountain wine. Tasted blind or not, it’s 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. It shows a bright beautiful display of sensuous regal maraschino cherries.
The nose on this wine boasts of rich acidity and bodacious black fruit. All the while hints of sweetened black current sinfully tease the senses with seduction.
The palate of this Brandlin Vineyard cabernet is massive! It has an aggressive amount of tannins, crumbled mocha, and a sense of terroir that tantalize the mind.
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.
