Mission Briefing

Codename:

Pinot Hero

Today’s Elite Operative Saturday wine is a premium wine - at a very budget-friendly price.

David Noyes has become one of our favorite winemakers. David was one of the first winemakers that Agent Red ever met and it was David that taught Agent Red so much about Russian River Pinot - so many years ago.

Today’s 2009 David Noyes Freestone Pinot Noir is a juicy, delicious, complex Pinot Noir that we absolutely love. We offer it to you, today with our heartiest recommendation. If you love great Russian River Pinot, you will not be disappointed.

A word on the vineyard: The Freestone vineyard, farmed by the Duttons, lies just off the Bohemian Highway at the very border of the Russian River, Green Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations. Significant marine influence insures slow growth and late ripening - leading to some of the finest Pinot in the entire appellation.

Very dark and very pretty with deepest crimson hues through an even darker heart.

Ultra long with dark fruit flavors that very gradually give way to earth, herbs, spice and lovely mineral

Roast duck in a balsamic cherry marinade.
