Mission Briefing

Codename:

Roman Holiday

This magnificent 2010 Roman’s Lot II Santa Lucia Pinot Noir is an absolute steal, dear Operative. We got our hands on every last bottle and at this new lower price we encourage you to make your purchase - before it is too late.

This gem of a wine is an extraordinary value and our tasting panel went absolutely bonkers for it. A little shy, at first, it just takes some of swirling to get the wine to spring to life. When it does open up, it reveals a plethora of sweet, bright, lush flavors. Characteristic of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, aromatics are through the roof.

We really can’t get over how underpriced this wine is. Even the glass bottle that the winery used is premium, giving the wine a grand feel.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Lovely dark ruby red with even coloration from core to edge. Clean and clear, this wine shows off thin, slow-moving legs when swirled.

Smell:

Initial aromas of saddle leather, fresh bread, and black cherry. After opening up the wine softens, revealing earth, green tobacco leaf, orange blossom, forest floor, violet, black cherry and braised plum.

Taste:

Dried cherry, black cherry, dried cranberry and India black tea lead the way, with concentration and depth. After the wine opens, it adds dried fall leaves, earthy bramble and soft spice.

Finish:

Smoky and softly dry, with earl grey tea and subtle leather. Flavors linger longest on the mid-palate.

Pairing:

Pair this food friendly wine with a lovely game bird or pork tenderloin in a Bing cherry reduction sauce.
