LEADING LIGHT OF THE MOUNT VEEDER WAVE
Located high above the fogline, and enjoying one of the longest growing seasons in Napa, Brandlin Estate has been slowly creeping into the elite group of Napa's great mountain wineries. The story of Brandlin Vineyard began in the 1870s, when the Brandlin family acquired their homestead high on the steep slopes of Mount Veeder. As early pioneers on the mountain, the Brandlins farmed orchard fruit, ran the local grain store, and operated the Mount Veeder stagecoach. In 1926, Henry Brandlin added winegrower to the list of family businesses when he planted the vineyard’s original block of head-trained, dry-farmed Zinfandel. Today, Brandlin encompasses almost 120 acres of pristine woodlands, and 50 acres of vines, spread across a ridgetop that rises from 900 to over 1,250 feet. This sleeping giant has re-awakened to flex its 150-year old history in Napa Valley. The Brandlin lineup is rarely seen outside of the city's best steakhouses, and precious few bottles of the Henry's Keep reserve bottling were released for the estate. Multilayered with notes of black currants, violets, camphor and black cherry, the wine is quite round with tones of rose petals and boysenberry. The more
aromatic components, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, give way to mocha-inflected coffee and black tea notes. The vintage is sneaky-powerful as wines appear floral and charming on the nose but pack a robust punch on the palate.
