"A wine that I have purchased and followed, and never been disappointed with, is Venge's Cabernet Sauvignon, Family Reserve. The 2012 is another killer effort. It possesses sensational ripeness, brilliant purity, a seamless integration of acidity, wood, alcohol and tannins, full-bodied splendor and gloriously pure blackberry, blueberry and cassis fruit intermixed with a whiff of smoky oak in the background. This is a great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from the heart of the valley. It should last for 25-50 years!"

"Aged more than two years in air-dried French oak, this is classic Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, velvety and plush. It boasts juicy blackberry and black fruit aromas and flavors, with weighty oak and a mix of coconut flake and chocolate that linger on the finish."

"There are 350 cases of the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Reserve which boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as beautiful aromas of cassis, red and black fruits, high-toned spicy oak, a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts 45-50 seconds. This fabulous, All American Cabernet Sauvignon that comes from a first-growth site will offer glorious drinking over the next 20-25 years. I am glad to see the Venges building sweeter tannins into their wines so they have accessibility in their youth and adolescence."

Wine Enthusiast, Steve Heimoff - June 1, 2012
"A massive wine, decadent and splendid, and a worthy followup to the near-perfect 2008. Densely packed in fruit, it explodes in blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, minerals and sweet, toasty new oak. That richness is lifted to by brilliance by the tannic structure, which is world class. So deliciously approachabel, it's drinkable now, but it should develop over the next 6-8 years."

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Steve Heimoff - June 1, 2011
"An absolute joy and triumph. Just superb, showcasing the best of Oakville. Perfect tannins, as pure as velvet and sweet, and perfect oak, too, with beautifully applied char and wood spice. That the oak is 100% new is in keeping with the wine's volumetrics. The wine's flavors are a profound, heady expression of blackberries, blueberries, cassis and dark, barely sweetened chocolate. Just spectacular, a real achievement by any world class standard."

Wine Spectator, James Laube - August 11, 2010
"A big, ripe style that’s rough hewn and chunky, yet deep and concentrated, with flashy plum, red and black cherry, red licorice and mineral notes, with a touch of green olive and espresso. Fullbodied, focused, complex and persistent. A notable achievement. Best from 2012 through 2024."
