Venge Scouts Honor Red 2011 (750ML)
"The 2011 Scout’s Honor is looking like another successful wine story in the making and yet another spectacular vintage in honor of our beloved winery dog, Scout. At 66% Old-Vine Zin-fandel, it is no wonder where the plush fruit comes from. This wine is based on a tradition of building a full bodied, delicious red wine that can easily be enjoyed anytime. We build up a base of Old-Vine Zinfandel with help from Petite Sirah, Old-Vine Charbono, and Syrah. The end result is a playful and unpretentious red that will satisfy time and time again. The 2011 vintage features a touch more acidity than the 2010, and it shows with racy, beautiful longevity in the mouth. This vintage is an eclectic assemblage with light violets, crushed herbs, red cherry, licorice and baker’s spice box scents that fill the room. The palate is driven with rich-ness from the Zinfandel with loads of ripe red berry and dark cherry and enveloping masculin-ity of mineral, char and tannin flavors from the Syrah, Charbonno and Petite Sirah. There is never a bite through the transition of the flavors. The balance is seamless and certainly mouth coating. There is a bit of a tannin kick at the end reminding one of the 16% Petite Sirah and 14% Charbono. At 4%, the Syrah adds a touch of campfire in the nose and a hint of saline on the palate. Scout’s Honor is certainly a generous mouthful. Cellared correctly this wine should age for 5 to 10 years." Producer notes
