Elegant, complex, and arresting, the Estate Reserve is a small-batch blend of the best lots from Bravante’s different vineyard blocks, aged in their best barrels. Black-fruited, full-bodied, robust and concentrated – it's a wine for Cabernet and Bordeaux lovers alike.
This flagship wine is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with 15% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by classic Howell Mountain notes of blue fruits, conifer trees, bay leaf, and savory, earthy, mineral-like aromas and flavors. This beauty is medium-to-full-bodied, has rock-solid purity of fruit, and fine tannins as well as a graceful, elegant texture. It's a beautiful wine from this estate that will drink well for 2+ decades.
