93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the very deep purple-black colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Brio has a lovely crème de cassis, warm plums, and baked cherries-scented nose with hints of spice box and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich, voluptuous, open-knit and plush, it finishes long and spicy. 794 cases were made.
The Domain: Ed and Deb Fitts have always believed in building the strongest business and personal relationships possible, selecting the right model and choosing the best people. They were drawn to this spectacular location above the cloud line because of the view of the distant valley and Lake Hennessey, but what they found up close was the proven soil of their neighbors and upon deeper inspection, we discovered that this land was ripe with promise. They were compelled to develop the potential of this property and guided by the expertise of our team we feel that we have begun the journey of a lifetime. Their vision is to build BRAND to a highly recognized name that represents the best red wine our vineyards on Pritchard Hill have to offer. Ed and Deb's personal goal is to help promote vineyards on Pritchard Hill as the most respected in the valley.
