Mission Briefing

Codename:

Aspirations in the Clouds

Today’s Astrale e Terra 2010 Napa Valley Red Wine is an astonishingly good wine. It is rich, complex, aromatic, layered with bold flavors and truly delicious.

The 2010 vintage still remains the iconic ‘it’ vintage of the last few decades for Napa Valley red wines. Today’s blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah is a wine that is even more exciting than some of the best ‘10’s we’ve had the good fortune to showcase.

Winemaker Scott Harvey brings his decades of experience to bear on this great wine. Trust Scott to lovingly see some of the best grapes ever through to the wonderful, mature, delectable wine that we share with you today.

Follow this 4th brightest star (Arcturus) - and go to the right and straight on ‘til morning.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep crimson with a slightly opaque center. Tall, skinny legs of garnet cling to the glass on swirling.

Smell:

Boldly fragrant with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, dried orange peel, sweet tobacco and spice that jump out of the glass.

Taste:

Fruit and savory elements intertwine, with bold plum, black cherry, cedar, stewed blackberry and plum compote, eucalyptus, leather and black pepper.

Finish:

Incredibly long, with dark fruit and leather lingering the longest.

Pairing:

This is a wine that begs for a rare, juicy steak companion.
