Mission Briefing

Codename:

Daily Drinker

Today’s Healdsburg Ranches Winery 2010 Russian River Valley Appellation Series Pinot Noir can be our delicious little 90 Point secret. Priced at a wallet-friendly $19.99, today’s Pinot drinks like a much more expensive bottle of wine.

We love winemaker Virginia “Ginny” Lambrix and always look forward to tasting her wines. This Pinot cleared even our heightened expectations by a mile. Incredibly elegant and refined, this wine is everything you could want in a Pinot Noir.

If you’re looking for a wine to impress your next dinner party, we heartily recommend today’s wine.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep scarlet at the center of the glass, transitioning to a slightly rustic red rim.

Smell:

Aromas of raspberry and boysenberry greet you initially and are quickly trailed by coffee bean, tobacco leaf, freshly fallen leaves, green peppercorn, a touch of toasted oak, and hints of subtle dark baking spices.

Taste:

Elegant and subdued flavors of sweet plum, black cherry, and raspberry mingle with earthy mushroom, saddle leather, sandalwood, black peppercorn, dark spice, and a note of herbal black tea.

Finish:

Long and lingering, with juicy dark fruit notes slowly fading and leaving a hint of subtle spice on the tip of the tongue.

Pairing:

Garlic and rosemary rubbed roast chicken.
