Winemaker Notes

Along with the rich fruit profile, there is plenty of aromatic intrigue, with playful notes of olive and sage as well as coffee, cocoa and hints of mocha. Complex and plush, the wine finishes with long, silky tannins that are round and persistent on the finish.

Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Exhibits a rich, tapered core of dark berry, anise, cedar and loamy earth, with firm yet rounded tannins that support the fruit mix, giving this traction and depth. Drink now through 2028.
JS 92
James Suckling
This is chewy and rich with plenty of dark fruit and dried citrus fruit. Full and flavorful. There's a stoney, mineral undertone to this. Drink now.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
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.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Brandlin Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a dense purple color, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit, an attractive floral component, impressive purity, and the vintage’s hallmark characteristics of ripe tannin, luxurious texture and medium to full body. Drink it over the next decade.

Brandlin, California
Brandlin Winery Image

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.
