Winemaker's Notes:

Varietally true Pinot Noir. Bright ruby color with floral and spicy aromas married with vanilla and cranberry. The wine's silky mouthfeel and perfect balance of bright cherry fruit and toasty oak makes for a pleasingly smooth, lingering finish.

Great on its own and will compliment mushroom risotto, lobster bisque, simple pork preparations, and prime rib.

My Notes:

About Outlier:

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 their 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.
