Bravante Vineyards Trio 2016
The 2016 Estate TRIO from the Howell Mountain AVA of Napa Valley, California offers intense red fruits - plum, cherry and cranberry. Subtle toasty notes are balanced and integrated tannins support a great acidity on the palate, giving a lingering finish. Secondary notes of mocha and savory dried herbs mingle with moderate alcohol and a pronounced refreshing acidity that lingers on the palate.
This is a well balanced wine composed of three main Bordeaux varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot - allowing for each component to contribute something to the wine. It was aged for 22 months in oak with an aging potential of 10-14 years.
