Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Bold and the Brooding

We love this wonderful, complex Chardonnay - and at today’s fantastic BOGO (Buy One, Get One) price, we predict that our Operatives will love it even more. Especially at today’s final price.

We love the richness and complexity of today’s 2010 Munselle Coin Flip Ranch Shadrach Chardonnay, Alexander Valley, but we also love its versatility. We can imagine sipping this wine on a warm summer night as easily as we can imagine enjoying it as a delightful accompaniment to an elegant dinner.

The Munselle family possesses remarkable heritage and great winemaking skill. Their pristine, historic Coin Flip Vineyard in the Alexander valley is planted to noble Robert Young rootstock. This combination produces very distinctive - and very intriguing - Chardonnay.

Very full on the nose and on the palate, this wine is lush and rich. On the finish, there is a voluptuous and sensuous feel that encourages you to take your time with the wine.

There is a limited quantity of this single vineyard Chardonnay, so this exciting offer likely won’t last the day. Please be sure to make your purchase soon.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light golden yellow, from the perfectly clear core right out to the fine glistening edge.

Smell:

Full and rich on the nose, with vanilla wafer, lemon, brioche, sage flower and lime flower. After the wine warms up, it unpacks subtle star anise and toasty oak.

Taste:

Rich and weighty, with big flavors of lemon, lime leaf, pineapple, brioche, lime flower and subtle hints of walnut and flint.

Finish:

Bold at first, with flavors that tail off to a bright and complex conclusion.

Pairing:

This big Chardonnay would be amazing with a baked triple cream brie with a fig jam, served on a fresh baguette. Poached salmon with capers and fresh dill would also be a real treat.
