Perhaps the finest example I have ever tasted of the flagship offering the 2007 Bacio Divino (Cabernet Sauvignon and small quantities of Sangiovese Petite Sirah and Merlot) boasts copious aromas of sweet creme de cassis... Perhaps the finest example I have ever tasted of the flagship offering the 2007 Bacio Divino (Cabernet Sauvignon and small quantities of Sangiovese Petite Sirah and Merlot) boasts copious aromas of sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with wild strawberries spice box loamy soil pepper and roasted herbs. In the mouth the wine reveals pure rich opulent fruit medium to full body no hard edges and a luscious fleshy style that is difficult to resist. It should age easily for 5-10 years but it is already irresistible.

Interesting for its mix of sweet berries and currants along with hints of green olives and a slight tangy twist this full-bodied bottling is very nicely balanced overall even if a bit fleshy at the front of the palate... Interesting for its mix of sweet berries and currants along with hints of green olives and a slight tangy twist this full-bodied bottling is very nicely balanced overall even if a bit fleshy at the front of the palate. Like its mate bottled under Janzen (see below) this wine has an outgoing and easily tasted personality yet boasts sufficient underlying structure to reward cellar aging.

The cabernet sauvignon that goes into Bacio Divino comes from some pretty notable names-Beckstoffer To Kalon Georges III and Cloudy's Vineyard. Opaque ruby with a bright pink rim. Classic Napa on the nose with soft aromas... The cabernet sauvignon that goes into Bacio Divino comes from some pretty notable names-Beckstoffer To Kalon Georges III and Cloudy's Vineyard. Opaque ruby with a bright pink rim. Classic Napa on the nose with soft aromas of cassis blueberry dark chocolate a touch of orange rind strawberry leaf zingy tapenade and brambly blackberry. There is also a surprising layer of minerality evocative of Bordeaux. Soft and luxurious upon entry this shows admirable balance between the dense fruit and driving acidity while maintaining a luscious mouthfeel. The finish is over a minute in length with vanilla chocolate and concentrated red fruit flavors. Mostly cabernet with small quantities of sangiovese petite sirah and merlot. Aged for 22 months in new French oak then in bottle for an additional 10 months before release. Kirk Venge is the consulting winemaker. Drink 2012-2020.
