Mission Briefing

Codename:

Serious Substance

Raymond Burr was clearly a romantic and today’s Raymond Burr Vineyards 2010 Dry Creek Valley Quartet Bordeaux Blend was made for romance.

This wine is honest, powerful and very elegant. Flavors are bold and forward, but not at all muscular or overpowering. Flavors and aromas are all in wondrous balance and the finish is elegant and seemingly endless.

If you love great Bordeaux-style blends, you will love this very special blend from the very special Raymond Burr Vineyards winery. We offer you this fantastic wine with our most hearty recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep scarlet at its core, near perfectly diffuse from core to edge, with just a hint of lightening at the rim.

Smell:

Concentrated, braised dark fruit of black currant, plum, and blackberry laid overtop sweet tobacco, espresso bean, anise, black pepper, and a touch of eucalyptus.

Taste:

Fulfills the promise of the nose, with deep flavors of braised black cherry and plum, cedar cigar box, fresh berry bramble, rosemary, and sage.

Finish:

Refined and well balanced, the finish is quite possibly the most enjoyable aspect of this wine. Wonderfully long and elegant, with the dark fruit slowly trailing off and leaving a slight pucker at the back of the palate.

Pairing:

Moroccan lamb meatballs served with lentils, couscous, and fresh mint.
