Bravante 2017 Merlot 750 ML
The 2017 Merlot has our trademark plum aromas mingled with dark crushed red fruits, spice box and hints of sweet dry herbs. Always lush and structured, the palate shows the plum again, layered with mocha and a hint again of herbs and chalk. Big mountain structure and firm tannins elevate the mouth-feel of this boldly styled Merlot.
Wine & Spirits
94 Points, Wine & Spirits Magazine “Merlot’s silken textures gain power and what feels like tangy mineral energy from the volcanic soils at Bravante’s Stony Ridge Vineyard. The lovely richness of fruit contributes to the wine’s dark vibe, combining the scent of lanolin and the firmness of structure to guide the flavors of grilled lamb.” —J.G. (225 cases)
