K&L Notes

The Venge family has roots in Napa Valley dating back to 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 essentially 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. 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."

    A wine that is mostly only available direct from the winery or in restaurants. Here's a chance to load up on this decadent Zin based blend from boutique winery: Venge. The family has a long history in Napa Valley and the base of this wine is from a 100+ year old block of Zinfandel in Calistoga. This was then bolstered with a dash of Petite Sirah from a dry-farmed block and some Syrah from the legendary Stage Coach Vineyard on Pritchard Hill! Yep...And all for our to-low-to-show price of...well you get the idea. Lashings of jammy, brambly fruit, ripe, soft tannins, lush texture and exotic oak spice. Big and bold is the order of the day here so go ahead and indulge yourself...this opportunity doesn't come around often.
