Winemaker's Notes:

With dark fuit aromatics and a vanilla note, fans of intense Pinot Noir will enjoy this powerful yet elegant wine. This wine is enjoyable now and will age beautifully for the next ten years.

This wine will pair with beef tenderloin, chicken breasts with rosemary and thyme, grilled salmon, turkey, and Skirt Steak.

About Bravium:

Bravium translates from Latin as "reward, prize, or gift." Derek Rohlffs - Bravium’s Proprietor & Winemaker - founded the winery in 2007. Bravium produces single vineyard, traditionally-crafted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown in hillside and mountaintop vineyards. Bravium’s vineyards are located in the relatively cool growing regions of Anderson Valley, Carneros, Mendocino Ridge, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Lucia Highlands, and Sonoma Coast. Derek employs simple winemaking techniques - gravity-moving wines and bottling his red wines unfined and unfiltered - allowing the vineyards and vintages to remain at the forefront. "The longer I make wine, the more I subscribe to a 'less is more' approach," Derek has said. Critics are growing increasingly excited about Bravium's wines, placing it alongside benchmark "producers such as Rhys, Kalin Cellars, Porter Creek, Joseph Swan, Copain and Littorai," while calling out its "deft integration of oak, judicious use of whole cluster fermentation, pleasant aromatics, flavor without weight, and bright acidity for refreshing drinking."
