16 Feb Venge Scout’s Honor
This is a perennial favorite of ours from Venge, the Scout’s Honor named after the winery dog Scout. It’s a spicy red blend full of character. This vintage is brand new to the market but the previous vintage was very well received by critics, receiving a 94 point rating from The Wine Advocate!
2015 Venge Vineyards “Scout’s Honor” Red Blend, Calistoga, California
On Sale $32.99
2015 marks another great vintage here at our Calistoga estate, especially for varietals like Zinfandel, Charbono, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. The growing season started early after an unseasonably mild winter, leading into a cool bud-break resultantly low berry-set. These small bunches outperformed in the cellar: the high skin-to-juice ratio of the must has given us the densest colored wines in decades, and inky color happens to be a hallmark of our Scout’s Honorproprietary red wine
