From the Winery: "Created by winemaker Derek Rohlffs, Bravium is the culmination of meticulous care in the vineyards and a patient approach in the cellar. Derek takes his cues from tradition. He doesn’t alter what the earth gives him. He’s a classic minimalist.
From the far reaches of Mendocino County, this wine is prototypical Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, a delicious combination of floral aromas, ripe fruit flavors, and savory elements. Brilliant ruby red in color, this Pinot Noir offers up a complex mélange of cherry cola, herbal tea, pennyroyal mint, rose petal, damp soil, and cinnamon spice. The luscious entry leads to mouthfilling, lightly crunchy cherry, berry patch, and plum flavors. The velvet-textured mid-palate is full of fruit, with medium acidity and chocolate notes evident on the saline and intriguingly savory finish".
