Winemaker Notes

A fuller, broader and savory style of Pinot Noir, the nose opens with aromatic concentrations of sweet tobacco, rose water, black cherries and allspice. The palate is exotic, expansive, yet focused with tongue curling acidity and a savory glide that finishes with substantial length on the palate. The body is surprisingly full without overwhelming the tasting experience. This is pure enjoyment. Bravo! Anticipated maturity: 2018 to 2025.

James Suckling
Subtle aromas of wet earth, mushroom, herb and dark fruits follow through to a full body, round and chewy tannins and a tangy finish. Lovely savory character to this. Drink now or hold.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Narrow Gauge offers up expressive notes of crushed red and black cherries and mulberries, with hints of black earth and rose hip tea. The medium-bodied palate is firmed textured with grainy tannins and a refreshing line of acidity, framing the red and black berry flavors, finishing long and earthy.

Venge Vineyards Winery Image

The Venge (ven-ghee) family has farmed vitis vinifera varieties in Napa Valley for nearly half a century. It is a journey that began when Knud Venge emigrated 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 name as an icon in the winegrowing community.

The family's viticultural roots flourished in 1976 with the purchase of a 17-acre vineyard in the Oakville District that was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This fortunate development cast the family among the winemaking pioneers of Napa Valley.

Nils' and Dianna Venge's son, Kirk Venge, gravitated to winemaking at an early age. He proved to be as talented a winemaker as his father, making wines in his own style, with a vision to build on the family legacy. In 2008, Kirk achieved his lifelong dream and acquired full ownership of Venge Vineyards. Today, Kirk continues the Napa Valley heritage, focusing on select vineyard sites that produce fruit worthy of bearing the Venge family name.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
