The Messenger 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Rich and lush, with loads of delicious, dark fruit and a touch of French Oak spice. The texture is smooth, round and feels fresh. This wine is a joy to drink while young, juicy and vibrant but will also develop lovely complex characters over the next decade in the bottle.

11*14 Rutherford 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
The fruit that springs from this soil is the grab you by the throat, hang on to your heart, we are not playing coy type of wine grapes. How something so unrestrained can be so elegant is an enigma lovers of Rutherford have been trying to puzzle out for decades. Ripe fruit and intensity of flavor with a fantastic structural backbone are hallmarks of this area and our 2018 deals them in spades.
