The 2011 Browne Family 'Tribute' Red Blend is introduced with aromas of leather, cigar box, and a hint of black cherry. The palate continues with notes of plum, maraschino cherries, dry cocoa and a touch of baking spice. Lingering vanilla and fruit notes give way to balanced tannins on the finish.
"In this blend of 47% Merlot, 23% Malbec, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 7% Syrah, Andrew Browne pays tribute to his sons Pavin and Riley with this bodified red. Juicy, lush and textural: a dynamo. coffee beans and black berries merge into the fast lane to deliver a ripe-fruited, dry tannin superstar. Spiced rhubarb, pencil shavings, violets and jammy blackberry add even more depth. "
