Mission Briefing

Codename:

Sandy loam

We’ve been featuring Lost Canyon Winery since 2008. As long as they continue to impress and delight me, I’ll keep bringing you their wonderful wines.

This wine is a complex, fruity, elegant and delicious Pinot that scored a 90 point score from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Our Agent Red would give the wine a solid 93-94 points. The wine is that good.

About the vineyard

Established in 1995 and planted to Pinot Noir clones 115, 113 and Beringer in sandy loam soil, the Morelli Lane Vineyard finds its home at a 1000’ elevation and only six short miles from the rugged and cool Sonoma Coast. Due to its location, Morelli Lane is influenced by cool mornings and warm daytime temperatures, allowing for maximum color development and unique flavors that lend themselves to crafting in a more classic Burgundian style.

Enjoy throughout the summer, but you might want to keep some on hand for your autumn entertaining…

Tasting Profile

Look:

Pretty dark garnet with slight opacity at the core.

Smell:

Lush and full with a complex melange of dark mixed berry fruit, spice and forest floor. As the wine opens up, it reveals Alpine strawberry, wild mushroom, subtle cedar and a hint of fall leaves.

Taste:

Flavors closely mirror the nose, with the addition of Bing cherry, subtle dried orange peel and just a hint of sweet spice.

Finish:

This wine lingers on the palate for a very long time.

Pairing:

Enjoy this lively, lovely Pinot with a cherry glazed pork loin - or with a slice of fresh cherry pie!
