Winemaker's Notes:

2007 was an outstanding vintage with the vineyard ripening perfectly. This voluminous wine is ripe with heady layers of black cherry, blackberry, espresso bean and our signature cedar box nose. The palate is marked by sweet, velvety tannins and a refined, almost mountain fruit structure followed by a bold and per-sistent finish. There is a ripe and rich sophistication to the wine that while drinking young now will continue to improve for several years to come.
My Notes:

About Venge Vineyards:

The Venge (ven-ghee) family has farmed vitis viniferra varieties in Napa Valley for nearly a half-century. It is a journey that began when Knud Venge migrated from Denmark to the United States in the early 1900’s. Knud's son, Per Venge, found his passion in the wine and spirits industry and started Vencom Imports, focusing on the importation of Western European fine wines and spirits. It was Per's son, Nils Venge, who left the family business in the 1960's with a vision to study viticulture at UC Davis and establish the family namesake as an icon within the winegrowing community.
