Mission Briefing

Codename:

Do You See It?

Finding incredible deals for our Operatives is what we’re all about. Here’s an Ultra QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) wine that’s 50/50 Cabernet / Merlot, but 100% Napa Valley fruit.

If they felt that they were taking a Calculated Risk, then it sure paid off! We’ll drink this one all day - Enjoy!

The wine is a nice dark garnet that allows only a tiny amount of light through. Aromas of potpourri and blackberry are found up front on the nose, along with alfalfa, plum preserves and toasting pumpkin seed. The palate is a different story, with the Merlot clearly taking center stage - flavors include white pepper, brown spice, fig, plum compote and leather. This is layered red blend that is multi-faceted concentrating on the tip of the tongue, top of the palate and the back of the throat. A smooth finish brings it home. The wine would pair well with a hearty split-pea soup made with the ham hock.
