Mission Codename Beauty in Everything

This wine was made from:
~
Cabernet Sauvignon from Pine Ridge ~
Petite Verdot and Merlot from Napa Valley ~
Syrah from Horse Heaven Hills, Washington ~
Zinfandel from Alexander Valley in Sonoma County ~
and Grenache from Edna Valley, California.

These are the vineyards of Pine Ridge, Chamisal, Seghesio and Double Canyon. If that doesn’t grab you, the fact that Pine Ridge’s winemaker made this wine will.

Michael chose the best of the best from these vineyards - and blended them up into what is a truly impressive wine.

Fragrant and juicy on the nose, with aromas of Bing cherry, blackberry jam, blueberry, spice box, cigar box and toasty oak.

Astonishingly delicious, with a palate full of blackberry, black cherry, smoky blueberry, kola nut, sweet smoky cedar, cured meats, blackberry candy, chocolate covered cherry, subtle spice and a hint of savory spice.

Michael Beaulac has made wines for Markham Vineyards and Murphy Goode, Merry Edwards and Laurier. Most recently, Michael made wine at St. Supery, where he spent seven years working with renowned French winemaker Michel Roland.

Today’s wine is offered to you with our very boldest recommendation.
