Mission Codename Red Gold
When Nils Venge’s own assistant winemaker described this wine as “one you’ll want to drink all day,” we just couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. And, wow , he wasn’t kidding! Today’s 2011 Napa Valley Posse Red is a whole lot of fun, and a tremendously drinkable red blend we immediately fell in love with.
Typically Nils’ wines can be a bit pricey, but not today - this delectable number can be yours for under $20. Today’s wine is incredibly soft and well integrated, making clear after one sip that while the price might be budget friendly, the quality certainly is not.
Today’s wine beautifully reaffirms a long-held notion here at the Wine Spies: If Nils Venge’s name is on a bottle of wine, you know you are in for a treat. Don’t miss out!
