Venge Vineyards Zinfandel Blend Napa Valley Scout's Honor 2010
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.Add winemaker's notes

Completely agree with the previous review. This is a very friendly blend.
Outstanding zinfandel blend! This was likely the favorite of this tasting. Excellent wine! - Tasted at Nora's Wine Bar 1/9/10
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.
External Reviews for Venge Vineyards Zinfandel Blend Napa Valley Scout's Honor
This vintage is an eclectic assemblage with light violets, crushed herbs, red cherry and licorice scents in the nose. The palate is driven with femininity from the Zin with loads of ripe red berry and cherry and enveloping masculinity of mineral, char and tannin flavors from the Syrah, Charbonno and Petite Sirah. This is a largely structured wine and not for the weak of heart nor imagination. With time this wine will certainly find itself developing wonderfully and finding even more harmony.
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.
