Mission Codename Code pink

We’re back with round two of Enigma. This time it’s a summer sipping, poolside quaffing, brunch enhancing, theme park smuggling rosé. We’ve put it to the test, and it literally goes with every single imaginable activity, including some we won’t repeat here. One sip of this mouthwateringly delicious, hyper-fruity pink juice and your nucleus accumbens goes into overdrive.

Two sips and you break out into a funky, contemporary interpretive dance - like a cross between krumping and ballet.

We won’t even say what happens when you finish the bottle. Truthfully the results may vary from person to person, but we know for sure everyone will thirst for MORE.

Like the Enigma Cabernet, we can’t tell you much about the source but that’s less important here. Needless to say, it too has a stack of non-disclosures. What you need to know is this comes from Grenache grapes, it’s hella fruity, and a total crowd-pleasing quaffer.

Ripe and fruit-forward, but dry and crisp - this was made deliberately (as in non-saignée) and it dishes out heaping amounts of lush watermelon and strawberry and a hint of ‘Mister Lincoln’ roses. UBER fruity, juicy, ripe, and rockin’ with a refreshing vein of acidity to keep all that lushness in check. As mentioned, it’s dry, but not like BONE dry - the slightest whisper of sweet fruit makes it so irresistible. There’s a strong chance this is your favorite rosé , and you just don’t know it yet. We’ll take the Pepsi challenge with others out there and put a smackdown - for sure.

Now about that label. Every Enigma wine contains a secret code and you must use our virtual enigma machine to decipher it (scan the QR code on the back label or visit drinkenigma.wine). When you become a codebreaker you gain entry into a wine club, unlike anything you know. You’ll get access to secret events, special offers, deep state secrets. It’s like the Skull and Bones, but instead of drinking blood, we drink wine. And instead of establishing a New World Order we get a big order of In ‘n Out and play bocce.

It’s been hot here, and we’ve been CRUSHING copious amounts of this stuff. Kind of reminds me of that catchy Little Big Town song - “Wine, Beer, Whiskey”.

“I’m not saying it’s a problem I can stop it if I wanna” …but who would wanna??

Wait until you taste it, you’ll understand.
