Peter Franus Brandlin Zinfandel

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 flavored grapes, growing for all these years without any irrigation other than the winter and spring rains. The vines are head-trained, independent of any trellis to support them.

The 2012 Brandlin is medium dark ruby, with aromas that slowly reveal their charm. There is a character unique to the vineyard that sets itself apart from all others. I have worked with these grapes since 1991, and there is an elusive quality that always intrigues-- --red raspberry, rose petal, lavender, white pepper, clove, ginger, and anise. A gentle entry with good acidity sustains the palate and announces, wine can be both fun and delicious!
