Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Crown Jewell

With a name like Joseph Jewell Wines, the jewel of a wine line largely writes itself. Well, in today’s case, it couldn’t be more true. We loved today’s 2010 Appian Way Vineyards Pinot Noir and strongly believe you will too.

Crafted exclusively from a small vineyard in the Russian River Valley, today’s wine impressed us with the quality of its fruit. We love visiting the RRV, trying new wineries and discovering new vineyards, and we put today’s wine right up there with the best of them.

Today’s wine shines on its own, but is also a fantastic companion to a wide variety of foods. We heartily recommend you stock up for your upcoming dinner parties!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep plum in the center of the glass, with flecks of ruby red trailing to the edge.

Smell:

Full and very aromatic, with notes of fresh wild strawberry, dark cherry, red currant, rhubarb, vanilla bean, cherry cola, rosemary, and black peppercorn.

Taste:

Very fruit forward on the palate, with just-ripened strawberry, sweet plum, and blackberry leading the way. Trailing these fruity flavors are hints of dried cranberry, herbal black tea, black peppercorn, and mild allspice.

Finish:

Smooth and long lasting, with strong fruit forward notes and subtle hints of dark spice at the very end of the finish.

Pairing:

Prosciutto and freshly picked mushrooms in a homemade risotto.
