Milbrandt Traditions Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Dark in color with a nose of black berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some deep rich black berries more reminiscent of a Shiraz, almost blueberries. Some cassis coming through as well. On the medium length finish the wine displays some smooth tannins, some nice acidity along with some peppery notes. There’s some noticeable alcohol but that will pass quickly. The wine has some lovely complexity. I would give it an 89-90. Yummy

Milbrandt Traditions Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 —VINTAGES#: 237784
Style – Full-bodied & Smooth  ›
Nice complexity on the nose, with raspberry, black fruit, smoke and vanilla notes joining the cassis. The palate is fruit driven and suggests both dark and red fruits along with a dash of spice. The finish is consistent and long. This is a great wine for barbecue steak, especially with a spicy rub. (VINTAGES panel, Nov. 2013
