Mission Codename By a Sapphire Shore
Today’s wine is the elegant and delicious Sapphire Hill 2013 Russian River Reserve Pinot Noir, a rich and very flavorful Pinot with an elegant edge.
This wine is complex, velvet-smooth and richly layered with dark fruit flavors, earth, and soft spice. A very food-friendly gem.
Goodness, what a lovely nose on this Pinot Noir! Cherry juice, black cherry, sweet leather, subtle spice, smoked cherry bark, bramble, kola nut and subtle caramel.
This wine rushes onto the palate with cascade of flavors, with black cherry, blackberry juice, toasty oak, dusty bramble, subtle spice and cocoa nibs.
