Mission Codename Ageless wonder
WIA awards keep rolling! It’s that time of year where we bust out the best, most popular, most re-requested wines of the year. And on day three we have the award for most popular Pinot of the year. Amazing we have any left at all…
Before we jump in, a special message from Agent Malbec about shipping:
“Happy Holidays Operatives!
As another year comes to an end, we want to remind you that if you currently have a temperature-controlled shipment that you need by Christmas - you must request for it to ship by this Thursday, the 9th to ensure that it departs on this week’s truck. As you may know, this logistical journey takes roughly 8-10 days to reach you from here in CA.
Here is some more information on our temperature-controlled shipping process and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need further assistance or special accommodations.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. -Dr. Seuss
Steer yourself straight to the website, throw a few of these in your cart, and you’re off to great places, today is your day! Then go take a walk and bask in the sun as you revel in your wise choices (and soak in some vitamin D - it’s good for ya).
You know La Crema already. An absolute FORCE in the Pinot scene. Turning out loads of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir each year with a Tom Brady like consistency. Just like this one. Hailing from Anderson Valley, a breeding ground for powerful, structured, world class Pinot. It has all that ripe richess you crave, with unmatched reliability.
And the price. You’re gonna love that part especially. Just $22! You’re local Sav-martco got nothing on us today.
So this stuff is stupid easy to drink. Still flaunting a nice ripe core of fruit even with a little bottle age, too. Lots of raspberry tea leaf and strawberry licorice (you know the stuff from Trader Joes that my wife demands I buy in bulk??). Or maybe that’s swedish fish. Or cherry cola. Whatever it is, we’re loving it. Some baking spices, a nice light robe of oak, and a smooth silky texture bring it all together from front to back.
Bottom line - It simply crushes. Get your bottles and have a great Monday!
