Mission Briefing

Codename:

The 94th Point

This is a spectacular Pinot Noir! So superb, in fact, that every member of our tasting panel will be ordering some for himself or herself, today - if there is any left after our Operatives get their first dibs!

Today’s 2009 Fotinos Brothers Los Carneros Pinot Noir is a deeply delicious wine. At first sniff, this wine transports you straight to the misty Carneros region where this wine was born. Lift the wine to your lips and your first sip wakes the palate with vivacious yet sophisticated flavors.

This 94 Point delight is a very special wine, in a very elegant bottle. We expect it to sell quickly. Hopefully, there will be some of this very highly recommended wine left over for our hard-working tasting panel…

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and dark ruby with a dense and perfectly clear heart. At the edges, the wine throws off glints of pink.

Smell:

Deep and dark with black cherry, blackberry, wild strawberry, red currant, briar patch and subtle smoked meats.

Taste:

Dark and rich with layers of berry and stonefruit. Leather and soft spice meld with sweet tobacco, dark baker’s chocolate, bramble and subtle forest floor.

Finish:

Plush and softly drying with integrated tannins and long-sustained blackberry preserve, dried cherry, hard dried leather, dried fall leaves and a hint of black pepper.

Pairing:

This wine has enough versatility to be served with a wide array of selections. We’re recommending Armadillo Eggs! Find the recipe, here: http://homesicktexan.blogspot.com/2011/02/armadillo-eggs-recipe-jalapeno.html
