Check Out The Brand Story

As you may remember from last month, we had the great pleasure of virtually sitting down with Christine and Jim of BRAND winery to speak to them about their impressive project up on Pritchard Hill. We fell in love with their product & their story and convinced them to carve out a small allocation of their stunning wines to offer to our clients. 

 

Philippe Melka has been involved in Brand since its inception 12 years ago. He oversaw the selection of clones and rootstocks during the redevelopment of the vineyards and directed every aspect of building the winery. While Philippe is involved in many projects, he does not spend his time equally among them. He makes some of his own wine at BRAND, need we say more!

 

This is a GRW secret weapon and we recommend you get in on the action before it explodes and becomes unavailable. Having tasted the wines all the way back to the spectacular 2012's, I am going to say 2017 is by far the standout. They made extraordinary wines, but in particular,  the 2017 Proprietary Blend is exceptional. Brand is dedicated to making some the best Cabernet Franc in Napa and I wouldn't hesitate to say, even the world.....think Cheval Blanc! 

 

Our first feature on BRAND wines highlighted their N°95 Bordeaux blend and we’ll just say this – the offer was a smashing success! Now, we are bringing you an exclusive offer and a chance to get your hands on their coveted Napa Cabernet and Proprietary Red.

 

Out of the the 43,000 acres of vines planted in the Napa Valley less than 1% come from Prichard Hill.  With the help of Rockstar winemaker Philippe Melka, Christine and Jim have continued being incredible stewards of their land and delivering some lights out wines that we truly can’t get enough of!

 

Please reply directly to order, we will be shipping the wines directly from the estate.

 

 

2017 BRAND CABERNET SAUVIGNON

 

"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (100%) is deep garnet-purple colored and bursts from the glass with ripe, expressive crème de cassis, freshly crushed black berries and plum preserves notes with touches of menthol, cinnamon stick, cedar chest and spice box. Medium-bodied, the palate has a firm, grainy texture and oodles of freshness supporting the expressive black fruit preserves, finishing on a lingering spicy note. " - RP94+

 

2017 BRAND PROPRIETARY RED

 

"Deep garnet-purple colored, it prances out of the glass with notes of kirsch, redcurrant jelly, mulberries and wild blueberries with touches of rose hip tea, star anise, candied violets and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features an impressively plush texture and seamless freshness, finishing long with gorgeous fragrant earth scents."  - RP95
