Mission Briefing

Codename:

A Perfect Union

While this may be the perfect wine for Halloween, it is no novelty! In fact, it would be downright spooky if you were able to find a juicier, more approachable wine for less than our ten dollar asking price.

Delivering a juicy rush of mixed berries, sweet spice and earthy goodness, this delicious wine really impressed our tasting panel. If you are looking for a conversation-worthy party wine, or a budget-minded daily drinker, we urge you to stock up on this wonderful treat of a wine.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep ruby hues, with solid coloration from core to edge. At the wall of the glass, a chubby pink ring runs a circle around the wine. After swirling, tall, thin, wine-stained tears meander slowly down the glass.

Smell:

Cherry, plum, strawberry and sweet spice lead the way. These are soon followed by ripe blackberry, dried brown tobacco leaf, toasty vanilla and subtle dried red flowers.

Taste:

Bursting with juicy red cherry, red plum and blackberry. As the wine breathes, it opens to revel follow-on flavors of sweet spice, dried fall leaves, star anise and subtle clove.

Finish:

Sweet and juicy red fruits tail off over a long interval, gradually yielding to the earthy flavors above. At the tail end, hints of clove and anise persist for a while longer.

Pairing:
