Venge Vineyards "Silencieux" Cabernet Sauvignon - Nils & Kirk Venge are a father/son winemaking duo that are some of Napa's finest at what they do... and most don't know their name. Both have been responsible for making 100 point wines in their past, and this INCREDIBLE Cabernet is nothing less than elite, posting ratings no lower than 94 points for 4 vintages. So, what's goin' on here? EVERYTHING that a Cab should deliver, that's what! Dense, ruby/purple colored wine that explodes with sweet cassis, blackberries and anise/coffee notes, all wrapped up in a smooth texture that seduces your palate. The oak is really framing this wine out nicely too...soft vanilla notes linger and integrate perfectly. Yeah, that's a whole lot of description for a whole lot of wine. Enjoy this wine with some really good brisket, a side dish involving red cabbage (trust me) or beef tenderloin. Then faint happily.
