Mission Codename Blended to Perfection
We’re suckers for delicious red blends here at The Wine Spies, and today’s exceptional 2010 Alexander Valley Three Vine Red from Eco Terreno had our entire tasting panel reaching for more!
Beautifully layered and complex, today’s wine packs a mouthful of bold flavors in a very approachable package. The three varietals that comprise today’s wine (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot) come together to create a very food-friendly wine. We couldn’t wait to pair ours with a meal of seared lamb chops.
Our Agent Red prides himself on unearthing hidden gems, and today’s beautifully balanced blend fits this bill perfectly.
