Mission Codename The Modern Traditionalist
Today’s delectable C. Donatiello 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a very balanced, very delicious wine that really impressed our entire tasting panel. This highly recommended wine shows beautiful fruit, harmoniously balanced against classic earthiness and subtle spice.
Earthy goodness and gorgeous fruit waft from the glass, giving you a preview of what’s to come - long before you even lift the wine to your nose. On the nose, you’ll find dark cherry, blackberry and plum that meld with earthy forest floor, wild mushroom, leather and subtle spice.
This wine is incredibly balanced, with fruit and earthiness wowing your palate in even proportion. The wine leads with bold dark cherry, blackberry, strawberry and blueberry. These are quickly joined by earthy forest floor, flinty mineral and hints of leather, spice and pomegranate.
This is one wine that is sure to impress your friends! Show up at your next dinner party with a bottle and be prepared to be showered with appreciation.
