Bravante 2004 Simpatico 750 ML
90 Points, Wine & Spirits Magazine; Only 190 cases of this wine was produced, and it represents the premium offering from our Estate vineyards. Normally reserved as a "house wine", we began releasing small batches of the Simpatico in 2001. Bravante Vineyards Simpatico is vineyard-select and then barrel-select, to ensure that this wine is always unique and special. It has beautifully defined fruit flavors of black cherries, and 23 % Cabernet Franc brings luscious blueberry and ripe currant with hints of earth, spice and toasty oak filling the flavor spectrum. The big fruit flavors are seamlessly integrated with refined and highly structured tannic core producing an elegant long and smooth finish. This wine could be enjoyed now, but will benefit from aging for 5-7 years.
