Brad is very excited to announce that after five years "without" we now have
Cabernet Sauvignon back in the house.
The 2014 Messenger RESERVE Cab Sauv is everything you would expect from Brad. This wine is not over-extracted or over oaked.
The latest Messenger smells like Cabernet, with unbelievable balance and structure... and the varying intensity of the cherries as they glide across the palate are exquisite.
From the elegant aromatics to the long velvet finish this wine nods to Bordeaux but embodies the majesty of Northern California's grapes.
