Full throttle Napa Valley; 92pts WE
is a project put together by Justin Stephens of D.R. Stephens and Kirk Venge
who makes the wines. Kirk with his father Nils are Napa winemaking royalty. (
Nils made the first 100pt Parker Napa Cab). There single vineyard cabs get
monster scores (95 to 97pts Parker) and sell for way over $100 a btll. They
also make an insider red called CUTT that for the money is one of the finest I
have tasted from Napa this year. The wine is red blend that varies each
vintage. Only 325 cases are made and the wine is quintessential Napa. In true
California style, this wine may have a bit of a swagger, but what can we say,
it loves an audience. The nose is bright and
beautiful, led by instantly gratifying notes of blackberry and blueberry
preserves and uplifted by a comforting core of caramel, vanilla and hints of
rich earth. On the palate, the entry is abundant and fruit driven, continuing
the promised berry theme well into the mid palate. The finish brings hints of
Christmas spices and sweet oak that has a pleasing mouthwatering effect.
This is a savory,
full-bodied red blend from famed winemaker Kirk Venge. Powerful Napa Valley
fruit is matched with heavy notes of sweet American and French oak, but this
wine maintains good structure in spite of its high amplitude.
