Venge Silencieux Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Our 2017 Cabernets on the whole are beautifully concentrated, powerful wines and not to be missed by the collector and enthusiast alike. We were fortunate to have all of our Cabernet lots in production prior to the fires of 2017. As such, all of our wines are 100% smoke free.
Fresh roasted coffee, sweet cassis and aromatic blue fruits lead the way to full bodied deliciousness. Much like the 2015 vintage, 2017 is 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. Best now through 2030.
This hearty wine is blended with 4% Petit Verdot. Grippy, rich and viscous, it has intense fruit flavors of plum and cassis, with supple, integrated tannins. The whole is a testament to good grapes and great winemaking, blending together seven sites across the valley.
