This is a thoroughly enjoyable, hedonistic wine - exciting blackberry, cassis and black cherry with perfectly balanced oak. Lovely and delicious

The Venge (ven-ghee) family has farmed grapes in Napa Valley for nearly a half-century, beginning when Knud Venge migrated from Denmark to the United States in the early 1900’s. Aged in French oak, 65% new, for 18 mos. A big wine, decant for an hour! Deep ruby with aromas of fresh blue and black fruits. On the palate blackberry and blueberry flavors, well balanced, good structure, full body, firm tannins, medium+ length ending. Will age well.

Since I’m originally a European, for some unknown reason, I always romanticized about the Kennedy dynasty. With the superb CNN series and this Time reprint, I better understand his role in shaping US and world history. The world needs more people like JFK and Bobby - god bless this United States of America 🇺🇸

I’ve seen @Ron R and others post this so many times with such praise, I had to try it. Such a great wine! Deep burgundy in the glass, this fruit-forward wine hits you with massive black fruit, sweet oak, hints of clove. Pop and pour, crowd pleasing goodness. Why did I wait so long to get this??? This may be the best sub-$50 wine I’ve had. Curious how this compares to prior vintages - anyone who’s tried the ‘15 as well as prior vintages please share!

Look up the word “consistency” in the dictionary, and you’ll see a bottle of this wine. Wifey loves this more than she loves me - well, not quite... 😏

Venge is not the only new addition to our house lineup. Not even the house white (term shamelessly jacked from TheSkip) is cutting it for Olivier!
Welcome to this wonderful world, nephew! 🍼
