Winemaker's Notes:

Red 7 has a ruby red hue and aromas of cherry and vanilla, with cinnamon spice notes. This North Coast wine is medium-bodied with flavors of cherry and berry fruit that persist on the smooth and crisp finish. Brilliant ruby red color with toasty berry patch, campfire, vanilla and cinnamon aromas. Sweet cherry fruit turns darker on the juicy mid-palate, picking up savory spice notes on the lengthy finish. This medium-bodied wine has an acid backbone that makes it well-suited to the table. Red 7 is approachable now and drinks great on its own and with a wide range of foods.

About Red 7:

Red 7 is a unique blend of seven of winemaker Derek Rohlffs' (of Bravium) favorite red varietals. This versatile wine is made for the table with its invigorating acidity providing for all types of food pairings.

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.
