Always 94pts or 93 Parker Save 24%The highly successful Venge Scout's Honor is, in this incarnation, a red blend, tipping the scales at 15.3% natural alcohol. A major sleeper of the vintage, this is a killer wine that sells for a song for how good it is. Inky purple with blackberry and cassis fruit, licorice, incense and graphite, the wine is full-bodied, unctuously textured and a thrilling mouthful of wine that satisfies both the hedonistic and intellectual senses. This is one of the best Scout’s Honor I have ever tasted. Kudos to Nils Venge’s son Kirk, the current winemaker.
