Our 2016 Cabernets on the whole are beautifully concentrated, powerful wines and not to be missed by the collector and enthusiast alike. Fresh roasted coffee, sweet cassis and aromatic blue fruits lead the way to full bodied delicious-ness. Much like the 2013 vintage, 2016 is dense and compact, with firm tannins that fully support the cascade of mouth coating flavors. The finish is remarkably lengthy and complex. This wine is approachable upon release and cellar worthy in proper aging conditions. Best now through 2028.

Aged 20 months in 50% new barrels, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux is a perfumed, exotic Cabernet that has lots of blackberries, blueberries, violets, damp earth, and sappy green herbs. It's fresh and vibrant yet beautifully concentrated, with silky yet present tannins. As with all these releases from Venge, it has fabulous purity and impeccable balance.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux has a deep purple-black color and is vibrantly scented of freshly crushed black and red currants, black plums and kirsch with suggestions of bay leaves, rose hip tea, forest floor and morels. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers wonderful tension with a firm, fine-grained frame supporting the youthful, muscular fruit, finishing long and savory.
