Mission Briefing

Codename:

Sophocles' delight

Today’s Art+Farm Wines ‘The Messenger’ - Red Wine Number 1 is a limited-production wine that’ll knock your socks off with its fabulous QPR (Quality to Price Ratio). At just $16.99, you’ll feel like you were practically stealing this lovely wine. Just be fast as this wine won’t last the day.

What makes this wine so good? Well, besides the value that it delivers, it also delivers a really lovely drinking experience. The unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (29%) - Ruby Cabernet (24%) - Carignon (18%) - Merlot (15%) - Alicante Bouschet (8%) - Malbec (3%) - Montepulciano (2%) and Petit Verdot (1%) delivers plenty of juicy fruit, along with earth and spice elements that provide lovely balance.

Don’t dally, though, we purchased as much of this wine that we could - and it won’t last the entire day. This wine will sell out.

Enjoy!
