There are many well-made technically sound wines out in the marketplace, but few can capture the soul and personality offered by Brandlin.
In the early 1920s, Henry Brandlin and sons Richard and Chester began planting vines on an eastern exposure hillside 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor. Today these are probably the oldest vines on Mount Veeder, and they continue to produce intensely flavoured grapes, growing for all these years without any irrigation other than the winter and spring rains.
Ageing exclusively in Burgundian French oak barrels added complexity as well as refinement to the wine. Dark ruby in color, the classic Brandlin aromas identify the unique character of the vineyard--crushed stone, bright berry notes, lavender, white pepper, clove, ginger, anise, bay and a touch of earthiness.
