Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Proprietary Blend is our finest Cabernet Franc with individual barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend for lift and energy, resulting in a wine of great finesse. The 2018 vintage is 63% Cabernet Franc and 37% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromatic notes of pomegranate, dried roses and allspice give way to a palate brimming with flavors suggesting dark red fruit, milk chocolate, green tea and sandalwood. The wine possesses the structure and intensity to support extended aging along with the grace and silky texture for pleasurable drinking while young.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
As usual about two-thirds Cabernet Franc and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon (63-37 this vintage), Brand's 2018 Proprietary Blend is a dense, rich offering, combining chocolaty richness with enlivening streaks of cassis, menthol and tobacco. Full-bodied and expansive on the palate, it's velvety in texture, plush even, yet it doesn't come across as overly heavy or alcoholic, and it finishes long, with hints of star anise and cassia bark. It should drink well for close to two decades.
V 95

The 2018 Proprietary Red is rich, luscious and wonderfully expressive. Black cherry, plum, spice, mocha and licorice are all amplified in this sensual, open-knit Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc blend. The 2018 is beautifully done. Give it a few years to soften.

Ed and Deb Fitts have always believed in building the strongest business and personal relationships possible, selecting the right model and choosing the best people. They were drawn to this spectacular location above the cloud line because of the view of the distant valley and Lake Hennessey, but what they found up close was the proven soil of their neighbors and upon deeper inspection, we discovered that this land was ripe with promise. They were compelled to develop the potential of this property and guided by the expertise of our team we feel that we have begun the journey of a lifetime. Their vision is to build BRAND to a highly recognized name that represents the best red wine our vineyards on Pritchard Hill have to offer. Ed and Deb's personal goal is to help promote vineyards on Pritchard Hill as the most respected in the valley.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
