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

90 POINTS
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

90 POINTS
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
