A ripe, racy, peppery style, with hints of berry jam, white pepper and raspberry fruit. Turns hot and tannic on the finish, so be advised. Needs food. 580 cases made.

The 1999 Venge Family Reserve Scouts Honor is an intriguing blend of 86% Zinfandel, 10% Charbono, and 4% Petite Sirah. Sweet black cherry, raspberry, briery fruit, pepper, and spice characteristics combine in this fun wine. It is medium to full-bodied and loaded with fruit. It will drink well for 4-5 years.
