Winemaker's Notes:

This wine will age gracefully and will gain complexity in the bottle. Dark ruby color with very floral aromas reminiscent of a Volnay, with background black tea notes. The expressive nose gives way to black cherry and pomegranate flavors on the palate, where the fruit is balanced by just the right amount of food-friendly acidity. This Pinot Noir is notable for its ultra-velvety mouthfeel. An elegant and lingering finish is highlighted by spice notes.

This medium-bodied wine compliments simply grilled salmon, herb chicken, duck, and mushroom tofu stir-fry.

About Bravium:

Bravium translates from Latin as "reward, prize, or gift" and sums up Proprietor and Winemaker Derek Rohlffs' feelings about wine – namely that it is a reward for our labors, a prized part of mealtime, and a gift to be shared. Derek's winemaking philosophy is an extension of his Environmental Studies background and belief that great wine begins in the vineyard. Bravium utilizes minimalist winemaking practices and its wines are balanced and food-friendly. One of Derek's music heroes, Jack White, has said: "Technology is the disease you have to fight in any creative field…ease of use [is the enemy]." And while winemaking is part art and part science, Bravium emphasizes traditional methods whenever possible. Bravium was created to give back to charitable organizations by way of its Sip&Give donation platform.
