2010 Vintage Gift Pack
Cradled in a beautiful gift box, Bravante Vineyards wine gift sets tell your clients, employees and loved ones alike that your relationship is enduring and deserving of a luxurious gesture. Offered with special vintages selected by our winemaker and available exclusively at Bravante Vineyards.
The 2010 growing season was defined by cooler temperatures, creating near-perfect conditions for thick-skinned Bordeaux grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A vintage for those who love a wine that straddles Old World silkiness and New World opulence, 2010 Bravante Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is generous yet elegant, with intriguing aromas of bright berry and plum, accented by cedar and sage. The palate is inviting and silky, with a vivid core of blackberry & liquor of cassis flavor, accented by herbs and balanced by a backbone of acidity and a smooth tannin structure. This Bordeaux-style wine has a very long, juicy, cherry-laced finish that speaks to its youthfulness. Enjoyable now or cellarworthy at least through 2022. Decant for maximum pleasure.
At Bravante Vineyards we have 2 blocks of Merlot, one at each end of our Stoneridge Vineyard, and they both add to the complexity of our Estate Grown Merlot bottlings. At the northern end of the property is Block 1, which is classic Merlot, fruity, rich and complex. At the southern end is Block 5, which is all ‘Howell Mountain’ -- intense and structured. Blended together they produce a rich, complex and structured Merlot, which has concentration and loads of varietal Merlot character.
The 2010 Estate Grown Merlot has captivatingly bright aromas of red plums, dark cherries, and mixed berries with complexing hints of tea leaves and vanilla. The lusciously smooth tannins balance the rich flavors of ripe Santa Rosa Plums, while the long finish is full of warm spices and rich, ripe fruit tannin. Enjoyable now or cellarworthy at least through 2020. Decant for maximum pleasure.
