Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Brand Brio Red 2016

The 2016 BRIO is a vibrant Bordeaux-style blend. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon provides a dense core of red fruit with 30% Cabernet Franc adding aromatic grace notes and 5% Petit Verdot contributing depth to the wine. Expressive and approachable, this wine displays dazzling notes of black cherry, cocoa powder and cardamom now and will reveal additional nuances with further aging.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 93:
Looking first at the 2016 Brio, which could be considered the second wine of the estate, it’s a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 50% new oak. It’s a forward, fleshy, incredibly charming effort that gives up loads of black fruits, leafy herbs, licorice, and tapenade notes, full-bodied richness, and sweet tannins. It’s ready to go but will cruise for 10-15 years.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 91:
Made from Cabernet Sauvignon from Pritchard Hill aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Brio has open-knit notes of warm cassis, blueberry tart and crushed plums with touches of chargrill, beef drippings and Marmite toast plus a touch of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with firm, chewy tannins and plenty of savory layers, finishing with a pleasant herbal lift.
