Tasting Notes:

Howell Mountain, renowned as an exceptional wine growing location, is the picturesque backdrop for Bravante Vineyards. Combine the location with an experienced winemaker and add in a wine cave built into the side of the mountain. The result is an ideal winemaking destination.

Just released, 'Trio' is a Bordeaux-style blend of three varietals that synergistically bring out the best in one another.  The Howell Mountain fruit shows off its lean dark fruit flavors and minerality. The wine showcases depth and complexity, with notes of blackberries, currants, cherry cola, sage and black tea. The tannins are in balance with the long pronounced finish.

Because this is a young, robust and complex wine, we recommend decanting for several hours. Buy extra bottles to age, as it will evolve beautifully over time.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Blended wines make for easy wine pairing. Serving meats is no problem with this hearty Howell Mountain blend. Beef, lamb, sausage, grilled meats, roast pork, BBQ and game meats all pair wonderfully with this wine as do dishes with mushrooms or pungent herbs. Grilled or roasted vegetables that are well seasoned pair well. Also match hard cheeses like Cheddar, Colby and Parmesan.
