Mission Codename Highest Marks
Nils Venge holds an important distinction; he was the first California winemaker to receive a perfect 100 point score (from Robert Parker). Since then, only a small handful of California winemakers have attained this level of recognition.
It is with great glee, today, that we welcome back Nils - and his stupendous 2007 Napa Valley Merlot. This wine, from the 96 point 2007 vintage, is sourced from the winery’s own Oakville estate vineyards and from a vineyard that was, immediately after harvest, sold to Duckhorn.
This delicious wine is a very well-structured Merlot with loads of chewy flavors and complexity. Quantity is limited for this very highly recommended wine so please act quickly.
