Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Art of Wine

Agent Red was able to get his hands on the last few cases of today’s Clos Pegase Winery 2009 Carneros Pinot Noir, but it won’t be enough.

Today’s single-vineyard Pinot comes from the winery’s Mitsuko’s Vineyard. The vineyard provides 365 rolling acres of pure Pinot heaven, with lush soil and breezy microclimates that are perfect for the varietal.

We offer today’s wine our highest recommendation, but please hurry - this Pinot is flying off the (digital) shelves!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark scarlet, with flecks of magenta through and through and a touch of a slight lightening as the wine edges toward the rim of the glass.

Smell:

A delightful bouquet of dark cherry, red and black currants, dusty berry bramble, dried rose petal, subtle brown baking spices, sandalwood, and toasted vanilla bean.

Taste:

Fresh berries lead the way on the palate, with boysenberry, blackberry, and raspberry showing through. These fresh fruit flavors are joined by summer briar patch, sweet tobacco leaf, lightly roasted coffee bean, touches of dried rosemary, and a faint hint of pomegranate herbal black tea.

Finish:

A lovely blend of fresh fruit and subtle spice, today’s wine presents a slight note of cranberry as the flavors slowly fade away.

Pairing:

Grilled pork chop prepared with a fresh rosemary and garlic rub.
