Mission Briefing

Codename:

Royal Flush

This rare version of Malbec grown in the Napa Valley is an exciting wine on many levels. First of all, it’s a plush, purple, pleasure-seeking wine that can’t miss when it comes to grilled meat combinations. A great grill wine, indeed. But it has this incredible varietal character that places it right into the neighborhood of high quality Argentina, modern Cahors, or even Bordeaux. The inky look, and floral, berry, plum, meat-loving flavors are a vivid expression of this intriguing grape.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Inky purple.

Smell:

Berries, plums, flowers, meat, smoke, toasty oak.

Taste:

Densely packed with same attributes on the palate. Lots of the varietal character of Malbec with berry, meaty, and floral, with baker’s chocolate galore.

Finish:

Plush stuff with a smooth, polished, toasty oak finish that’s tough not to like. Generous and silky.

Pairing:

Like in Argentina, the grill is where it’s at with this purple monster.
