Mission Briefing


The Gold Standard

When Agent Red tasted today’s Sodaro Estate Winery 2009 Limited Edition Napa Valley Felicity Cabernet Franc, he had to secure some for our Operatives. When he learned that the limited-production wine had not been released, he just had to have it all.

We are thrilled (and very proud) to be the only source in the world for today’s complex, rich, dark and very delicious Cabernet Franc. The wine is a treat right out of the bottle, but it is after some hearty swirling that it really springs to life. We recommend this sort of vigorous treatment, or an hour of decanting, to get the most out of this fantastic wine.

Cabernet Franc is the most food friendly red wine varietal of all, and we believe that this wine would be a treat with everything from lightly seasoned chicken or pork dishes to more robust beef dishes like a pepper rubbed t-bone or a nice fatty prime rib with plenty of horseradish.

Enjoy now, but be sure to cellar a few bottles. This wine will get better and better over the next 7 to 10 years.

Tasting Profile


Nearly perfectly diffuse garnet from core to edge, with just a subtle lightening at the rim.


A classic Cabernet Franc on the nose, with smoky blackberry and plum overlapping green olive, fresh bell pepper, sweet tobacco leaf, and a touch of sweet floral notes.


Bright and complex, with luxurious balance. Reduced fruit of black cherry, plum, and blackcurrant mingle with saddle leather, fresh spring garden, tobacco, espresso bean, black pepper, sage, rosemary, and hint of lavender.


Long and lasting, with a bright acidity and a bit of smokiness on the very end of the palate.


Moroccan-style braised beef with carrots and couscous.
