Venge has always done a great job with Scout's Honor. His 2014 is a blend of
71% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 10% Charbono and 4% Syrah, tipping the scales
at a whopping 15.4% natural alcohol. This may be the best Scout's Honor Venge
has yet made. Absolutely glorious blueberry and black raspberry fruit, some
truffle, licorice and spice are all present in this full bodied, opulent,
fleshy and successful wine. It is a hedonistic fruit bomb, for sure, but also intellectually
pleasing. This is a big, rich, classic Napa wine from a great, great vintage.
Drink it over the next 7 or 8 years.
