A western Oakville standout, this handsome Cabernet magnum delivers riveting berry and spice flavors wrapped in rich, coating tannins. It's approachable yet age-worthy, meaning you can cellar or serve it with confidence.
From the black cherry and dried herb aromatics to the sappy fruit flavors, Branding Iron Cabernet pulses with instantly approachable appeal. With deep fruit flavors that have a focused intensity yet feel round and broad on the palate, there’s a compelling density we have come to expect from western Oakville Cabernet, along with coating tannins, warm toasted oak and an extended finish.
Lots to like here, with a well of açai, plum and blackberry fruit to draw on and extra sweet spice, licorice, bay and sassafras accents adding range. Finish pumps along nicely, pulling everything together. Well built. Best from 2022 through 2033. —J.M.Wine Spectator
