Gold Medal SF Chronicle Wine Competition - Cabernet Sauvignon
90 Points Wine Advocate - With delicious blackberry and blueberry fruit, dark ruby/purple color, medium to full body, good purity, ripeness and a realistic price, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Brandlin Estate is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Malbec. This is a lovely, rich Cabernet and a great value in the scheme of Napa Valley.
92 Points Vinous - A big, powerful wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is brawny... Dark red cherry, tobacco, savory herbs, mint and anise are some of the signatures. This powerful, explosive Cabernet is long on both personality and potential.
