Mission Briefing

Codename:

And I say...

We’re thrilled to welcome Atlas Wines back to our pages, with today’s very highly recommended and uber delicious Atlas Wine 2013 Agnitio Sun Chase Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.

This wine is an intriguing, flavor-packed delight. Don’t miss out on this great steal of a deal…

Lively and alluring on the nose, with aromas of blackberry jam, plum, grilled plum, cherry tobacco, black cherry, spice, dried mushroom, forest floor and a hint of cedar.

Bold flavors cover the entire palate with a coating of black cherry compote, cherry bark, cedar, tobacco leaf, dried mushroom, cracked earth, dried fall leaves, grilled fig and spice box.

This delicious Pinot Noir was made by French winemaker Alexandre Remy. He’s the guy that other winemakers consult when they need help making their own wines. Alexandre has come to the rescue of many a wine brand throughout his career.

Alexandre’s company provides a full range of vineyard services for some of California’s most prestigious wineries. They count the likes of Twomey (Silver Oak), Pegasus, Babcock, Sojourn, Ponzi, Bethel Heights, Kanzler, Penner-Ashe and MacPhail among their clientele.

Without Alex and his company to farm and tend their vineyards, where would they be?

Tasting Profile

Look:

Gemlike ruby hues with wide, glinting, pink diamond edges. Thin, branching legs streak down the glass wall after swirling.

Smell:

Blackberry jam, plum, grilled plum, cherry tobacco, black cherry, spice, dried mushroom, forest floor and a hint of cedar.

Taste:

Black cherry compote, cherry bark, cedar, tobacco leaf, dried mushroom, cracked earth, dried fall leaves, grilled fig and spice box.

Finish:

Intriguing and extra long, with fruit and earthen flavors tailing off in equal proportion. Eventually, plush tannins take hold, leaving the palate with a slightly chewy dryness.

Pairing:

This bold Pinot would be great with an herb roasted chicken, or pork medallions with a Dijon and cream sauce.
