Venge 2013 Oakville Estate Vineyard Merlot (Oakville)

#18 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2016
Return to List

Wow. Juicy, expansive and effusive, this wine is made from 100% estate-grown dry-farmed, relatively old vines of the variety, and introduces itself as a Cab-lover's version, with explosions of black pepper and plum that soften to a polished point on the finish. Mouth-filling, it wraps in complex notions of cedar, cigar and dark chocolate. Drink some now and some later; cellar through 2023. Virginie Boone
