Wine experts say this White wine delivers as advertised at affordable prices. It`s dry and crisp in acidity, with pleasant citrus, pear, green apple and spice flavors. Feels chunky and easy, with a clean, crisp finish. This sparkling wine shows how. The blend is 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. It`s muscular, chunky and ripe, with blackberry, black currant, fig and licorice flavors. Could be a little drier, but it`s a big, ripe, cellar-worthy wine. Brandborg always produces fine Pinot Noir. This latest vintage is, as always, a breath of fresh air away from the generally better 2007 version. The fruit appears crisper and further ahead of the tannins, which are still showing some development.
