WS 92 JS 92 WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Exhibits a rich, tapered core of dark berry, anise, cedar and loamy earth, with firm yet rounded tannins that support the fruit mix, giving this traction and depth. Drink now through 2028."
According to James Suckling - "This is chewy and rich with plenty of dark fruit and dried citrus fruit. Full and flavorful. There's a stoney, mineral undertone to this. Drink now."
According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Brandlin Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a dense purple color, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit, an attractive floral component, impressive purity, and the vintage’s hallmark characteristics of ripe tannin, luxurious texture and medium to full body. Drink it over the next decade." 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
