Loads of black fruit, cassis. Some herbal, smoky tones in the background. Ripe slightly dusty, and gripping tannins. Awesome wine.

Opened this last night, and will compliment the tomahawk steak perfectly. Such a great pour for the money. So well behaved and focused on the nose and palate. Why pour Bone Ash when this is outstanding? Picture by wifey

We forgot to post this last night... this vintage is also excellent from Venge. It has a rich, extravagant nose, combined with a plush, textured palate. The black fruits are so ripe, they ooze from the glass. Pristine tannins are joined by taught acidity - a perfect combination. Loads of minerality, similar to gravel, but in a good way. Finishes with cherry jam, hints of rhubarb and coffee grinds. Very complex and worth every bean.

Black licorice, anise, vanilla, light clove & cinnamon, dark spice with heat, leather, black rich soil, clay, sandstone, crushed rocks, dark & purple flowers, violets and lavender.

Purply red color which looks a vibrant lilac on the edges when swirled. Complex dark fruit nose with a hint of smoke. A lush mix of red and dark fruits to taste with a smoky dry tobacco finish. Paired with a delicious ribeye steak pan fried in butter and finished in the oven.

Big red fruit on the nose. Cherry, fig, nice earthiness for a well blended structure with firm tannins and medium acidity. Classic big bold Napa can right here.
