Mission Briefing

Codename:

Six Generations

Today’s highly recommended 2010 Felta Creek Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, from our friends at De La Montanya Winery is an outstanding wine at a remarkable price.

Bright, aromatic and delicious, this wine delivers a plethora of flavors and aromas. On the palate, the wine is complex and elegant. On the nose, it bursts with bright aromas of sweet fruit and spice.

Balanced acids and flavors make the wine a wonderful and flexible companion for most foods. Pair with a pork tenderloin in a cherry and wine reduction.

Tasting Profile

Look:

A deep and rich crimson core falls off to soft purple hues at the edge of the glass. The wine appears weighty and substantial in the glass. After swirling, multiple rounds of thin, branching legs move slowly down the glass wall.

Smell:

Balanced and light, with top layers of black cherry, dried cranberry and subtle cocoa dust. Beneath these primary notes, the wine exudes aromas of cedar, brown spice and clove.

Taste:

Leads with prominent notes of black cherry juice, plum and black cherry. Notes of subtle buckskin, green tobacco leaf and subtle dried rose petals begin to emerge as the fruits fade.

Finish:

Very long and flavor packed with white pepper spice at the center palate. As the wine begins to move towards back palate, fine tannins give the wine a soft, drying grip.
