Venge Vineyards Zinfandel Blend Napa Valley Scout's Honor 2010

Member Review by aronowm2:

this is just deeeelicious. harmonious blend of zinfandel, petite sirah, charbono and syrah. the zinfandel definitely is in the forefront but there is a nice tannic backbone from the other grapes which helps mask the 15.2% alcohol. Had this with BBQ chicken breast and corn on the cob. the perfect complement to an awesome end of summer meal.

this is a very reliable recommendation for friends that aren't regular wine-drinkers -- a highly accessible, fun, and food-friendly wine at a reasonable price point. fresh red berries accentuated with light herbs and minerals. i highly recommend the whole line-up of venge wines. i am a very happy member of their wine club and have not been disapointed thus far.

A blend of 68% Zinfandel, 17% Charbono, and 15% Petite Sirah is the excellent 2005 Venge Family Reserve Scouts Honor. Briery, gamy, herb, tar, truffle, black cherry, and wild mountain berry fruit are present in this rich, medium to full-bodied effort. It is best drunk over the next 3andndash;4 years.

Zesty yet supple, with plum and roasted sage aromas and lively black cherry, tobacco and brush flavors that finish with firm tannins. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Charbono. Drink now though 2012.
