Kirk Venge has been crafting wine since he was a little child under the tutelage of his dad Nils Vegne. Kirk has wowed us with many great wines (Macauley, Honeycutt, Jax, Igneous, Venge, Trespass, etc) Really, his dad told me that at pre-school age he knew Kirk was going to be winemaker.

In a recent blind tasting of 10 big-name Napa Cabernets this small producer received a 97 Point rating from the 42 people panel. It beat out wines like Opus One, Chateau Montelena, Cliff Lede, Von Strasser Reserve, Morlet, Gemstone, Caymus, Forman & Carter “Beckstoffer” To Kalon.
The 2010 Beau Vigne Romeo (82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot & 1% Petit Verdot), is a thrill from the first pour. This wine begins with a beautiful color of purple and black hues that cloak the glass. The aromatics of blackberry, cassis, black cherry and toasty oak are just what you would come to expect from a complex cabernet. This wine exhibits hints of tobacco leaf and a kiss of French Oak. The mouth feel of this Cabernet is very youthful and fresh. Bright red fruits are warmed by a warm wrap of vanilla and white chocolate. Several sensations of maraschino cherries, black licorice, and savory oak spices come to mind. The mid-palate is explosive with minerality and firm tannins that carry it to the back palate.
