Brandlin is Cuvaison's Mount Veeder-situated property devoted to Bordeaux grapes. This particular bottling is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Juicy and woody, it opens with a rich, Cabernet Franc-like nose of herb and cassis and is balanced on the palate, with a ripeness of oak at the end.
