Mission Briefing


All That Glitters

Limited Quantity Alert - We secured every last case of today’s wine. In the country. Once it is gone, it is gone forever - so act quickly.

Today’s wine is one of the finest Pinot Noir that we have sampled in quite some time. We only wish that we could have gotten our hands on more. As it is, we scooped up every last case and are making it available to you.

Today’s 2006 Kim Crawford Rise-and-Shine Central Otago Pinot Noir is a mouthful - in both name, and on the palate. The wine is lush and earthy and perfectly balanced. Earthy notes fruit soft spice and minerals all play together so beautifully in this elegant, delicious wine.

We can’t recall a more balanced Pinot Noir in recent memory. Act quickly, dear Operative…

Tasting Profile


Beautiful ruby red hues, with even color concentration, from the core of the wine, out to the pink rim. After swirling, the wine settles quickly, leaving behind tall columns of skinny, wine-stained tears that run slowly down the glass.


Aromas are interwoven with one another with being cherry, fresh violence, ramble, raspberry, dark wild strawberry, sweet spice, softly toasty oak with subtle campfire and subtle forest floor.


Delicious black and red fruit combine with earth and spice in a complex interplay of flavor. The wine leads with dark cherry, loamy fresh earth, smoky plum, flint, dried red flower petals, dried leather and toasty oak.


Bright and mouthwatering, with flavors that linger on for a very long time. As fruits fade, earthy flavors persist even longer, gradually creating a chewy feel that is accompanied by a flinty dryness.
