Origin: California, Napa Valley, United States
Vineyard: Venge Vineyards
Tasting Note:Fresh roasted coffee, sweet cassis and aromatic blue fruits lead the way to full bodied deliciousness. Dense and compact, with firm tannins that fully support the cascade of mouth coating flavors. The finish is remarkably lengthy and complex. This wine is approachable upon release and cellar worthy in proper aging conditions
At This Price At This Quality Level. This Wine Has Become One Of Toughest Finds From Napa.
When it comes to Napa Cabernet, few people can produce wines like Nils Venge. Venge who is referred to as “The King of Cabernet” is a legendary winemaker producing stellar bottlings since 1970. As a matter of fact, he became the first American winemaker to ever score a perfect 100 pts. score from Robert Parker for his 1985 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. Nils has partnered up with his son Kirk to form Venge Vineyards where they make some of the biggest and baddest monster Cabs and blends on the planet. I had dinner last month with Kirk at Morton’s Steak House in New York and we tasted through his new releases. The 2018 Venge Cabernet Silencieux was the star of the line-up. This wine is one of the greatest buys in Napa Cab. The wine has got monster scores by Parker, 2012 got 95pts Parker, 2013 95pts Parker, 2014 got 94pts by Parker, 2015 got 95pts and 2016 94pts. Now we have the wine priced down to $44.99 with FREE CASE SHIPPING making this the king of low priced killer Napa Cab.
This is a one-time price on the wine and I can tell you it’s a great price. The Venge’s are masters of Napa Cab and this Cabernet Sauvignon wine is spectacularly rich and opulent, huge concentration yet awesomely smooth and supple on the back end. Tannins are totally integrated allowing this wine to drink excellently well now and will show superbly in many years to come. The heart and soul of this wine is its vineyard sourcing, which is a blend from Venge’s best estate-owned parcels in Calistoga and Oakville. We have a one-time allocation of the 2018 vintage and it is a stunner. 2018 is a buy vintage for Napa Cab! The Wine always sells out fast, this is a great wine and a great buy! I strongly recommend it.
Galloni 2018 Napa, “2018 is a vintage of gorgeous, super-refined Napa Valley Cabernets”
