A finished barrel sample of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve displays that vintage’s deep ruby/purple color along with sweet creme de cassis and floral notes, a striking purity, and full-bodied richness without heaviness. Venge appears to have hit pay dirt in this top vintage with this beautiful 2012. It tastes like a largely unformed barrel sample, but it is locked and loaded, and should turn out to be every bit as strong as Venge’s finest Family Reserves produced to date.
