    April 9, 2022 - 2hr decant in cellar. Big, rich, velvety Napa Cabernet. Still exhibiting barrel influence of oak and vanilla accompanied by big dark fruit. Silky tannins with a long finish. This wine needs a steak IMO. Very rich on its own but did nicely with a cut of red meat. For my palate I would’ve preferred to give this bottle a couple more years. Enjoyable drinking experience nonetheless. We have enjoyed Venge wines regularly over the last several years and feel that his Cabernet’s greatly benefit from a minimum of five years of aging. Excited to see where this is in year 10.

    January 21, 2022 - Minimal nose. Initially classic and well balanced turning fruity and extracted but a huge crowd pleaser. Not sure what advice to give on when to drink (probably a few more years) or how (maybe let breath for an hour). Also hard to rate- I could have gone 3 points higher or lower.

    January 8, 2022 - Fantastic. Big opulent wine, dark purple color with black fruits/cassis, vanilla, a hint of leather, smooth tannins. Really enjoyable over a few hours with beef.

    December 4, 2021 - Hedonistic indeed. Better after opening up for a bit with a little chill. Pronounced tannins still naturally but well integrated with the fruit and acidity. Needs another 3-5 to continue to meld.
