Top Notes For
Bromento Mori

Had me fooled: it’s a big un, full of dust & pencil lead, w/ bright acid. Not a great amount of fruit & darker than expected in the glass. Certainly a savory aspect, & sneaky bell pepper ghosts around in the background. It almost clowns the notion of Cabernet Franc, but something steady, noble, grounded keeps it true. You might not guess it blind, but it makes sense anyhow.

A little light for a cab franc but smoky, dry and easy to drink.
