Founded in 1969, Cuvaison is one of the pioneering wineries that helped shape the modern era of Napa Valley winemaking. As an independent, family-owned winery for nearly five decades, we are dedicated to crafting exceptional wines from our acclaimed estate in the Los Carneros region of Napa Valley. To this day, our mission remains true to our roots, and so do our wines.
In the vineyard: Henry’s Keep is Brandlin’s flagship wine, a proprietary red blend comprised of the highest quality grapes from the Brandlin Vineyard. “Henry’s Keep” pays homage to the family patriarch, Henry Brandlin, who would “keep” from each vintage a selection of the estates’ most exceptional grapes for his family’s own bottled wine. Continuing that tradition, the Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a small, western-facing block that consistently produces rich and intensely concentrated fruit. Blended with a selection of each vintage’s finest Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the result is a compelling and complex wine.
“Coming off a string of cooler vintages, 2013 was a dry, warm, sun-kissed vintage on the slopes of Mount Veeder. A big, opulent red wine, our Henry’s Keep exhibits deep notes of black currants, boysenberry and blackcherry fruit and spiced with coffee, mocha, anise and a hint of camphor. A lush, full-bodied wine, the tannins are round, supple and age-worthy, lending structure and precision to the long finish.” – Steve Rogstad, Winemaker
