Venge Red Blend "Scout's Honor " 2010

Napa Napa Valley
Retail Price: $38.00
This wine is based on a flavor and tradition of building a full bodied, delicious red wine that can be easily enjoyed anytime. We build up a base of Zinfandel with help from Petite Sirah, Charbono and Syrah. The end result is a playful and unpretentious red that will satisfy time and time again. At 70% Zinfandel, it is no wonder where the plush fruit comes from. There is a little barrel vanillin carrying the black fruit preserve fruits as well. In the mouth the intro is very smooth and carries through the middle to the back pallet effortlessly. There is never a bite through the transition of the flavors. The balance is seamless and certainly mouth coating. There is a bit of a tannin kick at the end reminding one of the 13% Petite Sirah and 11% Charbono. At 6%, the Syrah adds a touch of campfire in the nose and a hint of saline on the palate. Scout’s Honor is certainly a generous mouthful. Cellared correctly this wine should survive well for 5 to 10 years.
