2008 Braganini Reserve Meritage 750ml
Remarkably fresh aromas of cherry and red plum intertwine with oak that supports this sleek and precise wine. An herbal note-like tobacco leaves in a cedar chest and mouthwatering acidity to accent the fruit. Scents of green pepper and spice are given a modest lift by an olive-green herb component. On the palate, the wine is light, lean and peppery, with a dollop of red cherry fruit that carries through to the finish.
2010 Braganini Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Firms up nicely on the finish, yet the flavors keep rushing through. Amazingly complex, with great structure, depth, richness and concentration. Food Pairing: Aged Cheese, Blue-veined cheese, Duck, Goose, Goat Cheese, Grilled Beef Steak, Pasta with Tomato Base, Stew or Casserole.
