2009 Branham Petite Sirah Rose...$9.99
Compare to $15 at Branham Winery
Production: 75 Cases
The Branham Obsidian vineyard in Napa Valley is the source for this
Rosè made from our Obsidian’s Petite Sirah. We created this wine for
our portfolio based on the outsanding success of our Chardonnay. This
Rosè is another chilled wine that is perfect for that one special glass on
a warm Spring afternoon or lazy Summer’s day. The wine is more dry
than sweet, yet replete with hints of the dark fruit flavors found in this
grape in its more robust presentations--huckleberry, cranberry, and
strawberries. Oh My!
2006 Branham Jazz Red Blend...$14.99
Lowest price on Wine Searcher...$25.99 at Kahn's Fine Wines
The Jazz quartet is fronted by Napa Valley Zinfandel (40%), Petite Sirah
(20%), Syrah (20%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%). Ours chops have
matured with this vintage, and this mastery of composition begins with
harmonious fruit on the nose, segues to refined melodies of black-plum,
dark berries, and coffee notes on the palate, and brings down the house
with a purposeful symmetry of tannins and acidity at the finish.
2007 Branham Rockpile Petite Sirah...$16.99
Compare to $32 at Branham Winery
Varietal percentage; 100% Petite Sirah
only 140 cases made
This Petite Sirah represents the second vintage for the new Branham
vineyards planted in 2004. This varietal is idealy suited for the rough
and tumble terroir of the Rockpile--high elevation, rocky soil, and fogfree temperatures. This wine is a great representatvie of this amazing appelation with its dark fruit flavors and radient purple tones.
2006 Branham Napa Valley Petite Sirah...$12.99
Compare to $32 at Branham Winery
At first glance upon opening, the deep inky-purple color makes one pause,
with the anticipation of a big, bold, and intense wine. This wine, however,
is a gentle giant; rich, ripe and berry-laden, with hints of tobacco and
pepper over a pleasant tannic tug, and a crisp acidity that leads to a polished
and surprisingly silky finish. Refined rather than brassy, a balanced gem,
but will mature well with a long cellar stay
2007 Branham Senal Red Blend....$15.99
Compare to $30 at Branham Winery
Senal is a proprietary blend of “Branham Rockpile Vineyards” Zinfandel
(45%), Syrah (20%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), and Petite Sirah (15%).
This wine is a showcase of Rockpile fruit, and a stellar example of the
complexity and depth rendered by this appellation’s terroir. The label
features a Mayan mask that hangs on the gates of our first vineyard
Branham Rockpile. We named the wine Senal, the good “omen” and
protector of our vines. All of the dark smokey fruit indigenous to the
Rockpile are showcased in this outstanding blend.
2007 Branham Rockpile Zinfandel....$15.99
Compare to $29 at Branham Winery
Planted in 1994 the Branham Rockpile represents the first vineyard of
BEW. At that time, we had no idea just how unique the terroir of this
location would be (Rockpile AVA). The vines at this vineyard produce
distinctive zinfandel fruit that belies its relative youth. The vines are
head trained and non-irrigated. Deep ruby color with brilliant purple
tones. Ample dark berry aromas with light smoky notes. The familiar
signature blackberry flavor of this Rockpile Zin resonates at the finish.
2006 Branham Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley...$19.99
Compare to $40 at Branham Winery
The Obsidian Vineyard sits in the heart of the Napa Valley AVA, bounded
by the Silverado Trail, the Napa River, Selby Creek, and Bale Lane. Fruit
from this vineyard comprises fifty percent of the blend. The remaining
forty percent is from grapes boasting Social Register bloodlines: the historic
Taplin Vineyard in St. Helena. The 2006 vintage is remarkable for its mild
summer and fall with no heat spikes or rain. Balanced tannins and acidity,
and dark, layered fruit propel the elegance of this Napa Valley gem.
