Mission Codename Mother's Little Bubbly
Today’s bubbly masterpiece has a lively, energetic mouth feel - with an elegant finish and an intriguing flavor profile. Flavors are light, but not restrained or even subtle. Instead, the wine presents its unique flavors in layers that evolve as you sip.
On the nose, the wine shows off lovely fruit, with unique, soft aromas of tea and subtle spice. Overall, there is a complexity and elegance to this wine that captivated us - from start to long finish.
2007 was a remarkable vintage for Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley, with Robert Parker giving the entire 2007 vintage a decade-high 96 points for California reds. In the hand of winemaker, Ginny Lambrix, it is no wonder that today’s wine - made from red Pinot Noir grapes - is so exceptional.
Happy Mother’s Day, dear Operative!
