2013 Venge "Oakville Estate" Merlot

SKU #1310824 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. *#18 Top 100 Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast Best of Year 2016* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

90 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A soft and dense red with plum, blueberry, and cooked pie aromas and flavors. Full body, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Why wait on this high-toned red? Inner quote mark (6/2016)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Merlot Estate Vineyard has chocolatey, smoky notes, dark, dense ruby/purple color, some tannin to shed and a fleshy, muscular mouthfeel. It's Merlot meant for cellaring and should keep for 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2015)
