Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Lone Wolf

Today’s 2010 Jack London’s Vineyard Sonoma Mountain Merlot is a fantastic and very food friendly wine that we are just in love with. The low price of today’s wine makes us want to stock up so that we have plenty on hand for entertaining - or to enjoy as a lovely daily drinker.

While the wine is beautiful right out of the bottle, allow it to breathe for just a few minutes for a more elegant and flavorful experience. The more the wine opens up, the more lovely the fruit becomes.

Enjoy this approachable, delicious and food-fantastic wine with our hearty recommendation!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark crimson through and through, only ever so slightly translucent, with a softening ruby at the edge.

Smell:

Everything you love about a merlot, with aromas of stewed blackberry and sweet plum, fresh spring garden, subtle black olive, sage, rosemary, and a touch of black pepper.

Taste:

A wonderful representation of merlot, with sweetness from the fruit elegantly balancing against mineral notes. Bright young sweet plum and dark cherry mingle with sweet tobacco leaf, fresh spring garden, .espresso bean, black peppercorn, and a lovely river rock minerality.

Finish:

Long and lingering on the finish, with the dark fruit flavors slowly fading, leaving a hint of minerality on the tip of the tongue.

Pairing:

A homemade caramelized onion, fresh mushroom, and black olive pizza.
