Mission Briefing

Codename:

Bravo, Bravium.

Today’s Bravium 2013 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is a delicious, bright, vibrant wine. It has plenty of the sort of bright fruit acidity that makes it an excellent companion for a wide variety of food pairings. If you love vibrant Pinot Noir for your dining pleasures, today’s wine is sure to please.

Enjoy this wine with everything from the simple to the complex. From light fish and fowl dishes to more robust red meat pairings like prime rib (with plenty of horseradish sauce!) or a garlic rubbed t-bone steak.

Drink now and for the next couple of years.

“The wines show deft integration of oak, judicious use of whole cluster fermentation, pleasant aromatics, flavor without weight, and bright acidity for refreshing drinking. Derek definitely has something going here and I would recommend the Pinot Noirs without reservations.” – Rusty Gaffney, The Pinot File, May 5, 2013

Tasting Profile

Look:

Perfect clarity through this pretty, cranberry-colored wine.

Smell:

Wild raspberry, Rainier cherry and red currant that mingle with sweet cedar, cherry liquor, dried violets, sweet spice and a very subtle hint of tomato vine.

Taste:

Bright and mouthwatering with flavors of cranberry, young strawberry, wild raspberry, tart cherry, dried wild mushroom and soft, sweet spice.

Finish:

Medium long, with sweet flavors that transform to mouthwatering tartness and fine tannin.

Pairing:

This is an extremely food-friendly wine. It is bright and loaded with a red fruit acidity that makes it a very flexible pairing partner. We’ll be enjoying ours with everything from delicate poached salmon to more complex pairings like Tagine chicken with dried cherries and almonds.
