Braden’s Rivalry

THE BLEND

55% ZINFANDEL  - Brochelle’ s flagship varietal, Zinfandel takes the lead on this blend, with lively tangy cranberry, simultaneously sweet and tart. There are darker flavors of brambly blackberry and hints of holiday spice.

45% SYRAH - Ripe strawberry jam, followed by smoked bacon, this Syrah is showcased by the oak much as a painting is displayed in a beautiful wood frame.

 

THE BARRELS

Braden chose heavily toasted French oak barrels from Nadalie Cooperage.  These barrels impart spicy and grilled aromas. Nadalie is a leading French barrel maker, founded more than a century ago by Auguste Nadalié in Montpellier, France.  Through 5 generations to this day, Nadalié continues to be family owned and operated.

 

TASTING NOTES

This wine displays a soft yielding texture with a glossy smoothness. It is elegant and palate coating.  There is a big hit of dried dark fruits melding together with smoky woodsy aromatics.  It is artfully blended to reveal the youth and vibrancy of Zinfandel and the complex depth of Syrah. This is a perfect reflection of the young winemaker himself.

Both brothers hand-picked their own fruit from our Estate Vineyard.  Each aged their wines for 18 months in French oak barrels, and only 45 cases of each wine were produced.  Both wines were bottled in 2011 and have been aging in the cellar with great anticipation ever since.  Despite these similarities, as with brothers, their wines are as different as can be!

Besides fulfilling their shared desire to personally experience what they have seen Dad do every harvest since they were born, this very intimate and special project will fulfill 2 very meaningful goals as well.  Proceeds from these wines will go straight to their college funds, and to their favorite charity.  We hope you enjoy the boy’s journey from grape to glass!
