Mission Briefing

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.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Vividly dark cranberry red at its core, mellowing to a lighter ruby edge.

Smell:

Leading with subdued, yet distinct, notes of stewed plum and black cherry, this wine balances out nicely with more herbaceous notes of sage, lavender, and white pepper.

Taste:

A wonderful balance of fruit and earth, with tart black cherry and cranberry compote overlaying notes of clove, sweet tobacco, and a subtle toasted oak.

Finish:

Very clean, with a pleasantly long finish, this wine’s fruit flavors are quickly followed by crisp pomegranate notes on the back palate.

Pairing:

We recommend serving this with a first course meal of a rabbit, green olive, and pistachio terrine.
