The Messenger Red Wine Number One
Lot # 914
As our blending base matures, so does the range of our grape varieties. This, our most diverse effort will remind you of past glroies and entice you into future possiblities. The depth and concentration of flavor is remarkable, while still maintaining a fine silky texture and fresh finish. The lineup in this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon, contributing bright raspberry fruit flavors; Ruby Cabernet (a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignan) adds color and texture; Carignan (widely planted in France and Spain) has gorgeous color, fine tannins and freshness; Alicante Bouschet, distinguished as one of a handful of grapes with red juice; Montepuliciano with its dense, spicy characters and the classic combo of aged Malbec/Merlot/Petit Verdot adds a little something extra.
The result is an immensely enjoyable, full bodies red wine that will ask nothing of you, but give untold pleasure.
