Mission Briefing


Devil in the details

Today’s Fama Wines 2011 El Diablo Russian River Valley Chardonnay is, simply put, fantastic. We bet that if this was put into a blind taste test with more “well known” labels, today’s wine would come out near the top.

The flavors are bold and expressive, with plenty of exotic fruits blending with browned butter, give this wine a delicate complexity. The long and lingering finish coats the front of the mouth with silk, then slowly trails away with hints of soft baking spices. This wine comes from Heather Munden, an up-and-coming winemaker who recently launched her own label after serving as winemaker at St. Francis Winery.

At nearly 50% off, this wine will sell out FAST!

Tasting Profile


A super pale straw yellow through and through.


Lush on the nose, with deep notes of brown butter laid overtop juicy apricot, white peach, mango, brioche, and toasty oak spice.


Complex, with fresh exotic fruit notes of mango, guava, and honeydew layered overtop toasted oak, caramel, brown butter, and soft baking spices.


Delicious and full, with just the right amount of acidity to balance against the sweetness. Caramel notes linger through the finish.


A savory, Indian-spiced carrot soup with ginger would pair beautifully with the sweet aspects of this wine.
