Brandlin Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 6% Cabernet Franc.
Brandlin is a Napa Valley estate that produces wine from a small, historic vineyard in the Mount Veeder appellation. The wines pay homage to the Brandlin family.
The story of Brandlin vineyard began in the 1870s, when the Brandlin family settled on the steep, rocky slopes of Mount Veeder and became grape growing pioneers in this famed region of the Napa Valley.
In 1998 Cuvaison Estate Wines was honored by Henry’s son, Chester Brandlin, with rights to purchase Brandlin Vineyard. Respectfully maintaining the integrity of the estate, only a fraction of the land has been planted to vineyards carefully designed to honor the integral beauty of the property. Glens of old oak trees and sustainable viticultural practices support natural biodiversity and abundant wildlife.
