Venge Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 1995 Napa California Red Wine 750 mL


Rated 96 points Wine Advocate #126 Jan 2000

Drink: 2003 – 2030 “This is a dazzling effort. It possesses over 14% alcohol, and is highly-extracted as well as wooded as it was aged in 100% new French oak. Exceptionally dense, it offers formidable quantities of black fruits, smoky oak, and licorice, awesome purity, and layers of extract. Its finish exceeds 30 seconds. My best guess for this unevolved, backward Cabernet is that it will require 3-5 years of cellaring, but will last for 2-3 decades. It is a remarkably intense, hugely concentrated wine exhibiting the tell-tale Nils Venge style of viscous cassis/blackberry fruit crammed into a flamboyantly oaked, powerhouse, ageworthy personality.

1996 Venge Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon


rated 95 points Robert Parker December 1998 “The 1995 Venge Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is spectacular. Its opaque purple color, and nose of blackberries, cassis, licorice, coffee, and tar scents are outstanding. Concentrated, thick, and unctuous, with outstanding purity, and layers of extract, this large-scaled, beautifully made, all-American-styled Cabernet approaches “bigger than life” status. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020.”
