Mission Briefing

Codename:

R.K's Dream

Highly recommended, this juicy, refreshingly delicious 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet from our friends at Maroon Vineyards is a wine that our tasting panel went crazy for. In fact, we all found ourselves taking deep inhalations, reveling in the wonderful aromatics, and large mouthfuls - in order to coat our palates with the fullness of flavor.

Beautifully balanced, this wine is lively, inviting, approachable and downright fun to inhale, drink and discuss. Pair food-friendly wine with a spicy meat dish or a thick, grilled, pepper-rubbed steak.

At today’s special price, we recommend that you stock up. We know that you can’t purchase every great wine that we feature, but we promise that you’ll love this one!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark ruby hues with perfect clarity through its darker core. At the edge of the wine, a fine ring of light perfect pink glints in the light. Swirl the wine and when it settles, leaves behind short columns of chubby legs that cling to the glass for a very long time.

Smell:

Sweet, dark aromas leap from the glass, right on opening. Lush, juicy blackberry, cherry, raspberry, dried meats and red plum are layered atop fresh pluot, braised nectarine, sweet brown spice, leather and sweetwood.

Taste:

Ripe and juicy mixed berry medley, combines with brown spice, sweet dried leather, red plum, dark chocolate, cigar box, bramble and dusty earth.

Finish:

Long and very flavorful, with long-with lingering berry fruit, spice and exotic earthy notes. At the very end, a lovely hit of freshly cracked pepper provides lovely punctuation.
