Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Promise of Youth

Today’s 2011 Rancho Sisquoc Pinot Noir is a lively, youthful wine that shows vibrant fruit and a silky mouth feel that we found delightful.

As the wine breathes in the glass - or after some extended decanting - it settles in and softens, revealing more subtlety and an even more easygoing feel.

With plenty of bright fruit, this wine is an easy pairing companion for many foods. Enjoy a few bottles now, but please hold several bottles back for a year or more to see just how well this wine evolves. We can’t wait.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep and rich, with striking crimson hues from heart to edge.

Smell:

On the nose, this wine is shy at first. As it opens, it unravels delightful aromas of cherry, leafy bramble, sweet dried sage, supple leather, alpine strawberry and cherry pie.

Taste:

Well-balanced fruit, with bright red cherry, early raspberry, early strawberry, and plum skin with hints of earthen components and subtle spice.

Finish:

Long and bright, with plentiful red fruit that makes the mouth water at the very end.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a cherry reduction pork loin with a mango salsa.
