Mission Briefing




Tasting Profile


Dark crimson. Opaque.


Rich fruit aromatics with tea incense and the signature savory scent of Carneros Pinot Noir. Ripe, juicy, and of the earth - and San Pablo Bay wind and fog. Impressive perfume.


Deep, dark, and cherry-laced with mocha-mushroom umami, rose garden essence, cran-pomegranate, cacao, mint. Multi-dimensional taste. 110% legit Carneros Pinot Noir by the standards of any decade.


It’s a young wine now, but delivers abundant pleasure at this point. There are tannins within that suggest a nice ride in the cellar of up to a decade. Saturated and very fine indeed. Extremely delicious Pinot Noir that’s built to last.


The case could easily be made for Chinese roasted duck, as a greasy bird rinse. Or, also fun is David Chang’s Bo Ssam recipe. Good for the mountains apres ski. Grilled wild salmon. Winter mushrooms of the Pacific NW. Bacon.
