Mission Briefing

Codename:

Go directly to jail

If you were going to be locked away in a cell forever with only one wine, you’d hope it was this one.

It’s ominous at first sight, eerily reminiscent of blood, with its deep dark red at the center, with a purple sheen. The nose is generous, offering a varied bouquet that includes hints of toasted pecan, toffee, boysenberry, hibiscus, blueberry, and honeysuckle. You might go mad putting your finger on what your favorite part of this wine is. The palate is so rich and nuanced, with luscious bramble, cassis, rhubarb, cherry, mocha, dark plum, coffee cake, hazelnut, and anise. Losing it yet? You will while considering how this wine that takes you in so many different directions is also balanced and harmonious on the palate.

The paradox will tear your tastebuds apart. Even if you only get bread and water, you’ll be satisfied as long as there’s a drop left in the bottle.
