2003 Venge Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Bright cherry red in color. Lush red fruit on the nose with a hint of eucalyptus. The palate shows deep, lush fruit, cherries, chocolate, leather. There is a bright burst of cherry fruit on the mid-palate. Fine, polished tannins, lovely acidity and balance. Finishes short to moderately long but still quite pretty. I could ask for a bit more complexity, but very nice. Having stood up this well for this long, the complexity may come. This could go another 5 years. 14.6% ABV but no heat at all. "A-"
