The 2015 Red Blend Scout's Honor is an almost kitchen sink blend of 70% Zinfandel, 14% Charbono, and the balance Petite Sirah and Syrah. It's a huge, fruit bomb beauty that's loaded with notions of tobacco leaf, plums, Asian spice, and violets. Fleshy, fat, opulent, and deliciously full-bodied, this head turner has remarkable purity, no hard edges, and is impossible to resist.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the blend for the 2015 Scout's Honor is 70% Zinfandel, 14% Charbono, 9% Petite Sirah and 7% Syrah. The nose offers up warm blackberries, cherry pie and mocha with hints of cedar and roses. Full-bodied, rich and opulent with velvety tannins, it finishes long and perfumed. (LPB)
The Venge family have roots in Napa Valley dating back into the 1970s. Kirk Venge has crafted some of the valley's highest rated wines, most of which are only available to their private mailing list. Scout's Honor is essential Venge's "House Wine" made in homage to the late winery dog, Scout, a golden Lab of legendary status. Winery Notes: "The base starts with old-vine Zinfandel from Venge's Signal Fire Vineyard in Calistoga (where some of those vines have been producing for over 100 years!) and build upon that with dry-farmed Petite Sirah, old-vine Charbono, and finish with mountain-vineyard Syrah from the Stagecoach Vineyard. The result is an unpretentious red wine that will satisfy time and time again. Not just a fan-favorite, this wine honors Venge's late winery dog, Scout. This vintage has a gorgeous, concentrated assemblage of aromas of stone fruits, crushed blue herbs, violets, cherry, anise, and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super-ripe blackberry, pepper spice, and an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Petite Sirah. A seamless balance and mouth coating deliciousness are found throughout the palate, with an extra-long finish."
