When a winemaker produces a Tribute wine dedicated to his two sons ….. you can expect one awesome wine!! This silky red blend offers big fruit flavors and well integrated velvety tannins. It has aromas of pipe tobacco, leather, and dark fruit layer along with boysenberry flavors and a hint of black pepper. The finish lingers with blackberry jam and toasty, graphic black notes. This blend of 32% Cab, 11% Malbec, 38% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc, and 11% Petit Verdot is aged for 22 months in 35% new oak with the balance being 2nd and 3rd use mixed oak. This wine had a Wine Spectator rating of 91 and a Costco Wine Consultant rating of 95!!! This wine pairs well with grilled meats and works well with rosemary and peppercorn. Priced at retail outlets in the $26-30 range, this outstanding wine is available at Costco FO for $19.99.
Pick up a bottle of the Browne 2012 Tribute for that special occasion!!!
