In todays review we are checking out Pearmund Cellars and their limited edition red blend call Black Ops Fifth Mission. There isn’t alot of background on this wine. So I reached out to Chris Pearmund, to get a little intel on this hush…hush blend they’ve been crafting over the last several years.
Like a captured solider during intense questioning and interrogation we couldn’t break Chris; he wouldn’t give up any details regarding the varietals used or blending information. They only thing he said was “try it and you’ll love it.”
So we tracked down a bottle at our local Taste Unlitmed here in Suffolk, VA. Then got down to the serious business of tasting. See our impressions and tasting notes below:

A well balanced, medium bold, red blend that is slightly fruit-forward with notes of blackberry, currants, oak, and a pleasant earthiness.
This is a blend that will appeal to a wide audience of red wine lovers. Those that enjoy a slight fruit forwardness in their wines; to others that like some complexity via subtle oak and earthy characteristics.
Great red blend with a slight fruit forward approach with balanced ruggedness coming from oak and earthy characters
This is a well-groomed red blend that creates a memorable experience in our eyes. It’s perfectly balanced with dark fruits, oak, and crushed rock/earthiness. We really enjoyed the flavor profile and aromas that came together in this wine. Pearmund Vineyards does such a great job with their wine and this is just another example of the care and effort they put into their craft.
