Product Description

The 2016 Venge Scout's Honor Proprietary Red has a sumptuous concentration on the nose of sweet black fruit, crushed blue herbs, anise, black truffle, and vanilla. The palate is rich with sweet blueberry and raspberry fruit, dried cherries, black currants, and pepper spices. It's fleshy and succulent with an enveloping masculinity and a seamless balance.

Varietal Composition: 68 Zinfandel, 16 Charbono, 10 Petite Sirah, 6 Syrah
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 14 months in 50 percent new American Oak, the balance in once used tight grain French Oak

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Scout's Honor is blended of 70% Zinfandel, 14% Charbono, 9% Petite Sirah and 7% Syrah. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up baked raspberries, fruitcake, dusty soil and Chinese five spice scents with touches of tobacco and potpourri. Full-bodied with a velvety texture and loads of spice-laced berry preserves flavors, it finishes long and opulent." -LPB, 10/29/18

90 Points, "Editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"Winemaker Kirk Venge combines 70% Zinfandel with 14% Charbono, 9% Petite Sirah and 7% Syrah to great effect, offering a jammy expression of blackberry, brown sugar and vanilla. Soft integrated oak supports the rounded rich fruit and gives it an impressive framework of structure and likability." -VB, 8/1/18
