Mission Briefing

Codename:

Full Stop!

Congratulations Kitfox, you have officially put the LAST WORD on Great Washington State Cabernet Values.

This is indisputably the nether, a no-man’s-land where such Cabs have ever explored at way under $20. Dare we say, not even engineers of over-delivering Washingtonians such as Charles Smith, Dave Phinney, or Joey Wagner have ever come close to the intensity with this Last Word. Why we need to elaborate any further on THE Last Word is beyond us, anyway, it IS the Last Word, full stop, final-final, mic drop, over and out dammit!

- Operatives: Okay, fine, well, how about a tasting note at least?

Did someone turn the lights off? I can’t see through this, is that dark ruby? The nose is exotically spicy, deep, concentrated with plum, nutmeg, cedar, and cherry. A richly flavored red blossom once sipped, supple, and complex with currants, herbs, and toasty oak. With almost digital precision, beautifully integrated, while supremely long on the truly impressive finish. An inspirational accomplishment with a $100 feel, ready for exquisite cuts of the best meats you can obtain, or if meat is not your thing, toss some fresh pasta with cream and exotic mushrooms, under a mountain of just grated Parmigiano…

Meanwhile:

- Agent Noir: Did I say this is an astonishing value even at $30 before an insane 40% savings on top?

- Operatives: Shut up already Agent Noir, thought you called the Last Word out like 100 words ago.

- Agent Noir: Can’t help it, that’s just the name of the wine anyway, may I have a VERY LAST word?

- Operatives: Okay, OKAY we’ll buy cases and cases, until it sells out just so you stop babbling away!
