Mission Briefing

Codename:

Manna from... Mt. Veeder

This wine could be described as the juiciest wine of all time. It absolutely bursts with fragrant aromas and juicy fruit flavors. It finishes clean and long and it has the right acidity to make it a fantastic companion for a wide array of food pairings.

Dark fruits and spice aromas fly from the glass, with blackberry preserve, black cherry jam, black raspberry, cassis, leather, sweet spice, chocolate covered cherry, and smoky blueberry.

Juicy flavors explode onto the palate, with fresh blackberry juice, bing cherry juice, cranberry, raspberry, sweet tobacco, sweet warm spice, acerola cherry, cherry wood, cigar box, and baker’s chocolate.

Today’s wine is the best Cab Franc we’ve featured all year. It is also our hands-down favorite Random Ridge wine we’ve shown all year. It may be the best Random Ridge wine we’ve ever featured.

We’ll let you be the judge.

Hurry, though, this juicy, delicious, balanced, food-friendly masterpiece is selling very quickly.

Cheers!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark purple with a dark and inky opaque heart. After swirling the wine, dark tears cling to the glass wall, slowly meandering downward.

Smell:

Blackberry preserve, black cherry jam, black raspberry, cassis, leather, sweet spice, chocolate covered cherry and smoky blueberry.

Taste:

Blackberry juice, Bing cherry juice, cranberry, raspberry, sweet tobacco, sweet warm spice, acerola cherry, cherry wood, cigar box, and baker’s chocolate.

Finish:

Initially bright and very juicy, then slowly drying as light, plush tannins add a softly chewy gripiness at the edges of the palate.

Pairing:

This delightfully bright and juicy wine has enough acidity to be paired with almost anything! We’ll go for something juicy, tangy, smoky or charred. How about a big plate of slathered ribs, or a thick New York steak with a garlic and black pepper rub?
