Mission Briefing

Codename:

Give me Moore

Today, we’re thrilled to feature the uber-delicious Mike & Molly Hendry Winery 2013 R.W. Moore Vineyard Napa Valley Zinfandel.

Yes, that name is a mouthful, but so too is the wine. This deeply fragrant, elegantly smooth wine is super delicious.

Super fragrant on the nose, with dark chocolate, cassis, plum, blackberry, caramel, mocha, soft spice, dried meat and black pepper.

Juicy and dark, with flavors of blackberry, black cherry juice, red currant, coffee bean, baker’s chocolate, bramble bush, spice box and black pepper.

The grapes for this wine come from the former Moore ‘Earthquake’ Vineyard. This special vineyard was under exclusive contract to Turley. Today, the grapes are divided between Hendry and the Biale Winery.

Our supply of this very special wine is limited, so reserve yours soon.

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

91 points - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast - “French and Hungarian oak cradle the dusty juice of old vines in this so, integrated wine, brawny in strawberry, orange zest and cheese rind. Black pepper and a note of leather close out the lengthy, spicy finish.”

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark maroon hues, from the heart of the wine, out to the slightly lighter edges.

Smell:

Dark chocolate, cassis, plum, blackberry, caramel, mocha, soft spice, dried meat and black pepper.

Taste:

Blackberry, black cherry juice, red currant, coffee bean, baker’s chocolate, bramble bush, spice box and black pepper.

Finish:

Extra, extra long, with spice and fruit finally giving way to bramble, spice and, eventually, black pepper. Tannins are plump and full, giving the wine a feel that is simultaneously rustic and plush.

Pairing:

Braised beef ribs, Chinese 5 spice pork riblets or a nice bacon cheeseburger would all be delightfully prefect with this tasty treat of a wine.
