Mission Codename The best gets better... Redux
Special Note: Last time we sold this wine we sold out very quickly. It was all that we could get our hands on at the time, and many of our Operatives missed out. Many of those Operatives that did get some home wanted more, so we sent Agent Red back to beg for another allocation. Here is our original review:
Today’s wine comes to us from one of our most popular wineries, W3 Wines in Napa Valley. Their W3 (formerly Caymus Vineyard) Cabernet Sauvignon is one of our best-selling Cabs of all time, so when Agent Red had the chance to snap up every last bottle of W3’s 2006 W3 Wines Napa Valley Merlot, he wasted no time!
This elegant and extracted Merlot is a true delight that we offer to you with our heartiest recommendation. If you were a fan of the W3 Cab, this wine will delight you just as much. If you are a fan of fantastic Merlot, you’ll be very impressed.
This wine really evolves in the glass; the more you swirl it, the more complexity, richness and character it exudes. This is no wallflower Merlot. Think a Merlot for classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon lovers.
