Wine with Andre: A Messenger from California
27 Apr, 2012
By Loop Contributor
I just discovered an incredible wine, The Messenger ,Telegram, from Northern California, for about $15.00.
For those of you who like red blends, you really should taste it. It is a full body, very fruity blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 15% Malbec and 1% Petite Verdot.
The result is a big and bright wine, with a chewy feel and hints of spices, liquorice and vanilla,
that’s easy to drink. It was aged in French oak and the tannins are so soft. You can drink it as an aperitif, or with your meal, or even as an after dinner drink, as it presents some notes of sweetness too.
Available at Wine and Spirits Discount Warehouse in New Rochelle (Next to ShopRite) and wherever fine wine is sold.
