On the nose, Brash parades a multitude of down home aromas. Plummy compote and a
heaping portion of berries intermingle with cinnamon, Five-spice and caramelized brown
butter. On the palate, the wine delivers a savory second course of tarragon, smoked duck
sausage and Baker’s chocolate. The plush, generous mid-palate offers creamy overtones
that draw out a lengthy, satisfying finish. Brash truly brings a little bit of home to your
glass. 274 cases produced.
