The Messenger 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Here's or first Napa Valley Cab from the vintage we've all been waiting for, 2012. The Messenger is a wine created by Charles Hendricks consultant to Napa greats like Viader, Barnett Vineyards, Paoletti Vineyards and Regusci Winery. Previous vintages of thi wine have been sourced entirely from the Oakville AVA, but in the stellar 2012 vintage with so much quality fruit available the Oakville grapes are blended with others from prime Napa Valley sources. The best thing about that is it brings the price down to an extremely reasonable level making this one of the best values Napa Cabs you'll ever find. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 6% Merlot and 2% Petite Sirah, this wine shows bold, forward fruit and a firm backbone of tannin. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "Very ripe and forward Cabernet, with jammy blackberry and cherry, spice and earthy flavors, as well as lots of sweet, toasty oak. Itís satisfying to drink now." Don't miss this super value!!

      Comments about The Messenger 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley:

      This is just a really solid, straight forward Napa Cab that is a value wine under that $25 mark. Pleasant nose consistenting of black cherry, plum and cola follows through on the palate with some notes of smoke, vanilla and chocolate. It's jammy and approachable, but not lacking in character. Drinking very nicely now, so grab some for the summer months to come.
