2018 Venge Family Reserve + 2019 Venge Igneous (new)

What does the hive say about the about the above? I’ve always liked their Family Reserve but my taste has faded for the others.

Anyone know about their new Igneous Vineyard?

Their release said they also have the following upcoming:

Venge Star Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley Venge Oakville 88 Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley Venge Terraces Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga Estate, Napa Valley Venge Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Venge Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley


I wonder why no responses.

I really like Venge, but I have no interest in the higher end wines. The style of the winery fits nicely into that in-between category for me. It is modern, ripe, fruity etc. and I like that at times, but I’m not paying over $50 for it. I like the Silencieux as the perennial favorite when I can get it for under $50 all in, and the Scout’s Honor for under $30 as the guilty pleasure Tuesday night pizza wine.

Once you get into the $80 - $100+ range, I’m looking at more serious (not fruit bomb) wines. W&M, B Cellars (Venge-made) and others.
