Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Quantum of Douglas

Today’s 2006 Peters Family Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is the latest in a long succession of wines from this winery. We’ve come to know Doug Peters, over the years, and we have come to love his wines. Always, they show character and complexity. Very well-balanced, this wine really springs to life after giving it a fair amount of swirling. Decant for at least 30 minutes or do as we do and swirl away - and witness how this wine comes alive.

Displaying delicate fruit and complimented by a plethora of supporting earthy characters, this wine is a complex California Pinot that intrigues from first sip, though to its long and flavorful finish.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light ruby hues with great clarity. The wine shows a barely darker core with great concentration of color, right out to it’s pinkish edges. When swirled, quickly-formed and tightly-packed clusters of thick legs legs speed down the side of the glass

Smell:

Lush and fruit-driven at first, with bold aromas of dark cherry, raspberry and young blackberry. These sit easily atop intriguing aromatic black tea, cinnamon, soft gunpowder, vanilla and dark mixed spices.

Taste:

Pronounced cherry, young strawberry and raspberry lead the charge. These are followed by touches of spice, earth, fresh herbs, flinty minerals and subtle gunpowder smoke. These add to the overall complexity – but without overpowering the silky texture and flavors of the wine

Finish:

This wine finishes long and elegant with bold fruit, oaky vanilla, minerals that dry – and soft spice
