I opened the 2019 Venge Silencieux Cabernet Sauvignon a couple nights ago. This is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot.
On the nose is black cherry, blackberry, plum sauce, black currant, chocolate, herbs, spice and black pepper.
On the palate is black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, cassis, vanilla, lavender, wood, green bell pepper and earth.
This is a full bodied wine with medium + to high acidity and medium + firm muscular tannins that leads to a long dark fruit earthy finish. I hope you all are well going into this weekend. Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy yourselves. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 21 days ago

Wonderful cab. Strong fruit. Tannins but not too strong. A tad more tannins than Austin Hope. — 7 months ago
