Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Pope's Nemesis

Today’s wine really rocked our world, at a recent private tasting with John Kelly, Westwood Winery winemaker/proprietor. Thanks, in part to the stellar 2007 vintage, this wine also benefited greatly from the maturing vines at the winery’s own Anadel Estate vineyard. Of course, John deserves some of the credit, too. Although, we always expect the best from this very skilled winemaker.

This 2007 Westwood Winery redFOUR is a complex, food-fantastic wine that our tasting panel took great delight in. Recommended as a superb, between-bites, palate-cleansing wine, this delicious treat is also a great wine to enjoy all on its own. Pair this wonderful blend of blend of 46% Mourvedre, 22% Grenache, 22% Syrah, and 10% Counoise with nearly anything you’d care to throw it at. With enough acidity and complexity, it’ll hold up to even the most complex foods.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark garnet, with softly cloudy burgundy hues that show through the glass, when swirled. The wine settles quickly, leaving behind tall, skinny legs that move swiftly down the glass.

Smell:

Bright and full on the nose, with high notes of cherry, young blackberry, young wild strawberry, cranberry and sweet spice. As the wine opens, it reveals dusty bramble, cassis and hints of blueberry, leather, dried orange peel and subtle lavender.

Taste:

Young, wild strawberry, cherry cola and Bing cherry are the lead notes. These sit atop blackberry, dried cherry, dried cranberry, dried leather, subtle spice, flinty minerals, dried herbs and a hint of subtle anise.

Finish:

Bright fruits persist for a very long time before they gradually tail off to reveal minerals, earthy flavors and tart dried cranberry at the very end.
