Brandlin Vineyard is located on a Mount Veeder ridgeline, in the southern Mayacamas Range on Napa Valley’s west side. Perched at 900 to 1,150 feet in elevation, the vineyard is divided into 15 discrete blocks facing every point on the compass. This block differentiation leverages the site’s varied aspects in sun exposure, slope and soil composition, each providing distinct fruit characteristics. In addition to the high elevation, the vineyard’s location in the southern section of the Mount Veeder AVA, provides more moderate temperatures than much of the Napa Valley. Fruit ripens slowly, and harvest may take place from late September to early November. Steep slopes of schisty, gravelly loam on shale provide the quick drainage, low yields and drought stress typical of true mountain sites. Grapes develop a high skin to flesh ratio, resulting in richly concentrated wines of great complexity, with firm tannin structure for long-term aging. Read less
