Mission Briefing

Codename:

Best bedfellows

Very limited availability alert: Today’s outstanding Rutini Wines 2008 Barrel Blend Red Wine will NOT last the day.

We were able to secure every last case of today’s robust Argentinian blend, but it just won’t be enough of this brawny beauty. It’s easy to see why Robert Parker and Stephen Tanzer both awarded today’s juicy wine 91 Points.

We can’t recommend today’s delicious wine highly enough!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Inky, dark crimson.

Smell:

Heady aromas of dark plum and blackberry are joined by hints of cinnamon, espresso bean, dark chocolate, freshly tilled earth, dried flower petal, and a touch of dried rosemary.

Taste:

Some serious flavors on this gem, with concentrated notes of blackberry, mulberry, and raspberry laid against fennel seeds, saddle leather, cedar wood, cassis, vanilla bean, fresh mint, and cranberry.

Finish:

With great structure, plenty of velvety tannins, and a silken mouthfeel, today’s Argentinian treat is a wine any Cab lover would greatly enjoy.

Pairing:

Rosemary and garlic encrusted pork tenderloin, fire roasted and served with a porcini mushroom sauce drizzled overtop.
