The long-awaited day is here, people! Your much loved and longed for ultra-rich Napa Valley salute to hedonism has arrived at our doorstep. Get today's Three-Pack Special, the 2016 Venge Vineyards Scout's Honor, while it lasts!

Winemaker and proprietor Kirk Venge has always favored modern, New-World wines in which super-ripe fruit characters take center stage on the palate. Before we had a chance to taste today's wine, word on the street was that the 2016 Scout's Honor was the richest vintage yet, with gobs of dense, mouth-coating, "turn-your-teeth-purple" fruit. We wondered: was it possible to craft a wine this rich with enough structure to maintain balance? We couldn't wait to wait to find out...

People, Kirk Venge nailed it.

The 2016 Scout's Honor is a big, flagrant, absolutely gorgeous wine that is bursting at the seams with deep, dark black and blue fruits that are lifted by bright acidity and supple tannins. It manages to be beautifully balanced and incredibly decadent at the same time. Check it out!

2016 marks the 5th straight year of a stunning vintage for Scout’s Honor. This plush, intense red blend honors the Venge's late and beloved Labrador Retriever, Scout. It is crafted with a solid base of old-vine Zinfandel, with dry-farmed Petite Sirah, old-vine Charbono, and mountain vineyard Syrah. Aged for 14 months in a combination of new and seasoned American and French oak, it has a sumptuous concentration on the nose of sweet black fruit, crushed blue herbs, anise, black truffle, and vanilla. The palate is rich with sweet blueberry and raspberry fruit, dried cherries, black currants, and pepper spices. It is fleshy and succulent, with an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Petite Sirah. It can be opened and enjoyed immediately upon release, but cellared correctly it will age for 5 to 10 years. (winery notes)
Only 1850 cases of the 2016 Scout's Honor were made. We were lucky enough to get a precious few; now is the time to make it yours. CHEERS!
