The second label of Cantenac Brown is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the Brio de Cantenac Brown has expressive notes of crushed black cherries, blackberries and black raspberries with hints of smoked meats, cinnamon stick and toast. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh, plush and juicy with loads of red and black fruits and a spicy kick to the finish.
"Dark cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, licorice and spice are all amped up in the BriO, Cantenac Brown's second wine. Expressive floral and spice notes add attractive lift throughout. Pliant, open-knit and inviting, the 2015 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years." Antonio Galloni 90 Points
