BRIO Napa Valley Red(CS Blend) 2013
Napa Valley, Coombsville District
June 6th, 2012.
The mesmerizing nose shows ripe black cherry, blackberry, red currant, and leather in the foreground with notes of mint, black licorice, sage, white pepper, and cigar box in the background. A black currant attack leads into a full, structured, and layered mouth of black plum, chocolate covered black raspberry, black olive, tobacco, and cocoa that gives way to salted caramel tannins. A long clean finish of raspberry filled milk chocolate truffle lingers on.
