Mission Codename Gods of Olympus
Today’s Dionysus 2010 Moore Vineyards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a wine that we first tasted in 2013. We enjoyed it then, but decided to revisit it at a later date. We went to our vault to pull out another bottle - and wow, were we very happily surprised! This Russian River Pinot had grown up - and had become quite delicious.
This Pinot is a silky, elegant, fruit-forward and well-balanced wine with a dynamic and long-lasting finish.
Catherine Fallis, SMC, ACWP - 95 pts. & Cellar Selection
“Pinot Noir at its best offers a complex, heady blend of ripe berry fruit, perfume, spice, and an elusive quality. This wine nails it. With notes of strawberry, cherry cola, rhubarb, cedar, forest floor, candle wax, singed meat, and orange marshmallow, a soft, luscious texture, and a mouthwatering slightly chewy finish, this light-bodied wine would pair nicely with crispy roasted pork belly, or Gouda, Gruyere or Comte cheese.”
