A fine find from Texas, the Brennan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Brennan and Soleado vineyards plus 25% Alicante Bouschet from the Diamante Doble vineyards in Comanche County, Texas. The wine was aged in a combination of American and French oak for 18 months and has just 0.1 g/L of residual sugar.
Sample submitted for review. The wine has an SRP of $30 and is available for as low as $16 (at least at Total Wine in Texas). 848 cases were produced.
Sophisticated wine with Texas roots.
In keeping with our motto, Brennan Vineyards and our acclaimed winemaker, Todd Webster, strive to produce world class, sophisticated wines from grapes grown in our vineyards as well as other areas of "The Lone Star State."
Produced and Bottled by Brennan Vineyards
The 2017 Brennan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a pleasing aroma of ripe blackberry and plum with a spicy, smoky note.
Tasting the easy to drink wine reveals a juicy, tasty Cab with some wonderful spicy, peppery notes. This is a really intriguing (and delicious) blend with the 25% Alicante Bouschet. With plenty of acidity, good balance and a food friendly nature, I can see this being quite popular and crowd-pleasing. And it gets even better as it has more air.
It ends dry and slightly tannic with lots of lingering tart fruit. Tasty!
