Venge 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve

“Our Flagship wine. Young and vivacious, yet seductive and dark. Very fruit forward, with bright elements of ripe cherry, currants, plum and hints of raspberry. On the palate you discover the vivacious cherry, firm acidity with hints of chocolate and oak. 100% new French Oak is employed to give this wine its warmth. "Old World" by nature, it will continue to improve for the next 3-5 years, and cellar well for 15 years or more.” - Winemaker Notes 95 Points, Robert Parker – “The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve is an exceptional 2006. Blackberry liquor intermixed with crème de cassis, licorice, incense, and floral notes as well as a hint of subtle oak emerge from the glass of this full-bodied, super-concentrated, rich, intense wine. A baby in terms of its potential development, it will benefit from 5-10 years of bottle age and should drink well for 20 or more years – that’s a given.” [+]
