Forsyth Brio is owned and operated by longtime Washington winemaker David Forsyth.Longtime Washington winemaker David Forsyth created Forsyth Brio as a small family side project to his day job at Zirkle Fruit Co.’s winemaking facility in Prosser. He made just two barrels’ worth of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Desert Wind Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope. This opens with aromas of salted caramel, lavender, dark chocolate and espresso, followed by gorgeous flavors of black olive, graphite, Rainier cherry and blackberry on the finish. This is a suave wine with nice breadth and depth.
