The 2015 Messenger RESERVE Cab Sauv has a nose full of complex cherries from front to back.
Upfront through the mid. you get cherries blending with cassis and plum staying with you until the long finish... then hints of the French oak that are adding to the structure of this elegant Cabernet.
From the elegant aromatics to the long velvet finish this wine nods to Bordeaux but embodies the majesty of Northern California's grapes.
