2012 "Inspired" Cabernet Sauvignon
"Inspired" Cabernet Sauvingon is BRYTER's flagship wine. When BRYTER began in 2007 only two barrels of "Inspired" Cabernet were hand crafted and from there this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon went on to achieve several awards and accolades, including 98 Points at the California State Fair and named Best Cabernet in all of California. Grown in the famed Beckstoffer, Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford, Napa Valley, only 100 cases are produced each year.
With only a couple of swirls, effusive aromas of dark ripe blackberries and licorice escape from the glass. Complex and layered flavors of black cherry, cassis and plum are followed by a touch of sweet vanilla on the palate. This young wine is lush and approachable now, but has plenty of backbone and will develop well for another10 years.
