The nose is a vibrant mixture of red berries, rhubarb, vanilla essence and clove. Crunchy cranberries and vibrant purple fruits fill the palate and are complemented by a savory truffle nuance. The palate is opulent but focused and the wine feels alive throughout its impressive length. Possibly the best Two Messengers made to date
Maison L’Envoye also produced Straight Shooter Pinot Noir 2017 which WineJug featured in early July. The entire lot of Straight Shooter sold out in 1 hour!
A beautiful medium intensity ruby with a slightly garnet meniscus, notes of red cherry, cranberry, raspberry, and vanilla lead the nose. On the palate, the red fruits are elegant and supported by blackberry, cigar box, black licorice, a hint of mushroom, and a smooth mouthfeel with a long toasty, smoky finish. An enjoyable Pinot Noir
