(35 percent new oak) Limpid ruby-red. Powerful red berry and Asian spice aromas, along with suggestions of smoky minerals and incense. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors and a subtle touch of blood orange. Silky tannins emerge slowly and fold smoothly into the vibrant fruit on the long, nervy finish, which leaves notes of five-spice powder and red berries behind. (JR)
Light and savory, with meaty, peppery overtones to the cherry and floral flavors, finishing gracefully. Has layers of complexity and terrific persistence. Best from 2018 through 2022. (HS)
The Maison l'Envoyé 2014 Attaché comes from 16 vineyards from all six AVAs, matured in 40% new French oak for just under 12 months. The nose is fuller and denser than the Two Messengers with bright red cherry and loganberry scents, nicely integrated oak and displaying commendable purity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite tensile tannin. This has a pleasing freshness, more cohesion than the Two Messengers with attractive tart cherry fruit on the finish. Pay another ten dollars and gift yourself this rather than the Two Messengers. (NM)
