2014 Venge has arrived as well as Beau Vigne,
Considering its straight off the truck and pop & pour I have to say its a great wine at $49.00 Can't wait to get an accurate tasting from the rest of the bottles once they settle down.

One of those slow build wines, starts delicious, then grows from there, and by the end you understand why they chose to put this delicious nectar in such a weighty bottle... Perfect wine when your dinner consists of wine, cheese and crackers.

Can't believe this is a 2013! Tobacco on the nose. Lots of blackberry mid palate. Heavy licorice finish. Very smooth.

Wow. Talk about full flavor with a little bit of dust. My new favorite discovery. Anything Venge is going to be excellent.

No longer dominated by oak, this Cabernet sends Napa fruit to the heart and soul. Far more enjoyable than other bottles I have had over the last three years.

Red and black fruit. Baking spices and vanilla. M acid and finish. M+ chalky tannin. Black cherry and berries. Very well balanced.

A cab with powerful notes of currant. I was hoping for a little more complexity, but this can won't shy away from delivering almost everything you want.

This Cabernet is a wonderful bottle of wine. On the nose black cherry, black currant and a good soil note. On the palate wonderful black fruit, black raspberry, black cherry, black currant, tobacco, and wet soil. Medium + acidity, medium smooth tannin. Just very nice overall with a smooth velvety mouth feel.
