2017 Venge Vineyards 'Scout's Honor' Red Napa Valley

$34.95 $40.00 (-13%)

Just over 40 years old, Kirk Venge has already established himself as an indispensible winemaker in the Napa Valley, gaining enviable critical acclaim for his no-holds-barred, ripe and plush Cabernet Sauvignon. We often say that Kirk’s wines should come with a hedonism warning label or require some sort of permit. The 2017 is the 6th release of this crowd-pleasing favorite. He’s built an impressive consulting roster too, making wines for luminaries like B Cellars, Hunnicutt, Macauley, Bacio Divino, and Trespass. A great pedigree scoring WA93 in 2016 and JD94 in 2015, the 2017 is yet to be rated. If you like Prisoner, Orin Swift, or Leviathan then this is your sort of wine.
