    Brandlin is a Napa Valley estate that produces wine from a small, historic vineyard in the Mount Veeder appellation. Overlooking Napa Valley from its 1,200 foot perch, the estate is planted to 38 acres of Bordeaux varieties. ese sustainably farmed, low yielding vines produce intensely concentrated grapes, resulting in wines that eloquently express this rare and rugged mountain site. e wines pay homage to the Brandlin family, which began farming wine grapes on Mount Veeder in the 1870’s and established the Brandlin Vineyard in 1926. In 1998 Cuvaison Estate Wines was honored by the Brandlin family with rights to purchase Brandlin Vineyard. Today, we remain dedicated to maintaining the original ten acres of old vine Zinfandel and continuing the family’s tradition of nurturing and farming the vineyard by hand.

    Winemaker Notes:
    “Our 2012 is overowing with boysenberry, black cherry and dark, plummy fruit. The excellent growing season and slow ripening we inevitably enjoy on this mountaintop estate tends to really focus and concentrate the flavors in our Cabernet Sauvignon. Along with the rich fruit prole we find plenty of aromatic intrigue, with playful notes of olive and sage as well as coffee, cocoa and hints of mocha. The 2012 offering is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Complex and plush the wine finishes with long, silky tannins that are round and persistent on the finish.” ~ Steve Rogstad

    Blended with 9% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, this is a perennial classic for the winery, the sister brand of Cuvaison. Juicy in cherry and cassis, it sustains big, pillowy tannins and tar, suggesting more time for the fruit to match up with the structure. Drink through 2020. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 90 Points
