Wine Advocate 95
"A blend of fruit from different sources, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux is a classic Kirk Venge Cabernet Sauvignon – broad, savory, rich and complex with notes of crème de cassis and vanilla, well-balanced wood, and a full-bodied, powerful, opulent style. This sensational effort should drink well for 20-25 years." ~ RP
" 2012 was an epic vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon with blockbuster results not to be missed. This wine opens with scents of sweet cassis, aromatic anise, blackberries and coffee that lead to a concentrated, full-bodied and powerful wine that showcases great length on the palate. Approachable upon release, and cellar worthy in proper aging conditions, fans will love this wine for its fruit concentration and complex structure. Best now through 2024. " ~ Winery notes
