Great Reviews for 2006 Brandlin Cabernet Sauvignon

 92 POINTS
One of the “Year's Best Cabernet Sauvignons”
This is an elegant, red-fruited 2006 cabernet. The scent of the wine is vibrant, in the realm of tiny strawberries and other pine forest scents; the tannins have a red edge to their darker, earthy mineral tones. Those tannins feel a little worked, softened and rounded in the cellar, making the fruit accessible without diminishing their Veeder character. It’s suited to a few years of age and a thick-cut lamb chop. - By Joshua Greene - 12/1/2009

Firm, rich, intense and concentrated, with fresh, vibrant black cherry, currant and wild berry fruit that's pure and vibrant, showing a pleasing earthy mineral character, joined by a touch of herb. Drink now through 2016. - By James Laube - 8/1/2009

This is a gigantic Cabernet. It detonates on the palate with an explosion of blackberries, black currants, chocolate, anise and smoky cedar, wrapped in firm, dusty mountain tannins. It’s the perfect example of a Mount Veeder Cab. - By Steve Heimoff - 12/1/2009

92 POINTS
Garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Fresh aromas of violets and clove with a notable flintiness. Accessible flavors of black cherry and plum edged by white pepper and mint. Raspy tannins support flamboyant fruit in the spicy finish. - 10/1/2009

What it does is leverage the wildly popular social media frenzy that's sweeping the nation with sites like Twitter, Facebook, You Tube and more. There are number of companies who offer copper in various forms. One final note on the compensation plan, it is a binary hybrid.
