Mission Codename X marks the spot
We’re going to let you in on a wine industry secret. Sometimes the most prestigious wineries sell off excess wine to wineries (like today’s!) that purchase the juice, bottle it, and sell it under their own label. We can’t tell you where today’s superior wine came from - but we can tell you that you are stealing it at today’s price!
These Treasure Hunter wines are akin to buying an inexpensive box of Cracker Jack and finding a prize inside - but instead of a disappointing trinket, you find actual treasure! Treasure Hunter covertly buys wine from some of the world’s best producers and then makes them available at an insanely great price.
You’d flip out, jump for joy and do cartwheels if you purchased today’s wine knowing which winery today’s special bottling actually came from. We can’t tell you because we’ve been sworn to secrecy and we’ve promised not to reveal the true origins of today’s steal. Rest assured, the equivalent wine is at least double the price. We have a really good guess about who actually made this wonderful wine, but we’re not even allowed to tell you that! Once a spy has been sworn to secrecy, well, you know…
Extremely dense with garnet coloration leading all the way to the very edge where it is encircled by a lip of crimson. The nose definitely reads like an intricate Cabernet with notes of raspberry reduction, black currant, dried roses, plum compote, and barrel spice. The palate is fruit-forward with cherry and cranberry at the center with notes of aromatic pipe tobacco, raspberry ganache, and some spice. It makes a grand entrance on the palate and mellows out as it moves towards the back of the tongue until by the finish it’s silky smooth. If you’ve never attempted beer can chicken, now’s the time. Make sure you give it a healthy coating of Italian herbs.
