Mission Codename No Turkey
We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving, dear Operative.
This is a complex, savory and earthy wine that took our tasting panel by surprise. This dark Aussie delight had us really taking our time, discussing the finer points of the wine along the way. As the wine breathes, it opens up to reveal added fruit, woodsiness and subtle spice. This is a very flexible companion for a wide array of food pairings. We can’t wait to enjoy ours with Christmas dinner - through next summer’s zesty backyard cookouts. Be sure to lay some down for next Thanksgiving, when the wine will be even better.
If you are looking for something off the beaten path, something that will stimulate conversation - and your senses - this wine is for you.
