Mission 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.
