2012 Brandlin Henry's Keep, Proprietary Red Wine
Henry’s Keep pays homage to Henry Brandlin’s practice of holding back and producing his family wine from the best grapes on the vineyard. Our 2012 is a classically styled wine displaying notes of black cherry, blackberry, violets, cocoa, mocha and crème de cassis. A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon from our prized “O” block and fleshed out with 9% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Much of the aromatic perfume is supplied from the floral driven Malbec with accents of violets and spice courtesy of the Cab Franc, while the Petit Verdot provides a deep bass tone, blue and black fruits with mouth-coating tannin. An idyllic vintage, 2012 crafted wines of archetypal structure and style.
