Silverado Vineyards Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Medium red-ruby. Blackberry, cassis, sassafras and bitter chocolate on the nose, along with sweet, exotic oak. Smoother and drier than the merlot, showing a bit more lift to its flavors of blackberry and menthol. This solid midweight finishes with serious, tongue-dusting tannins and subtle sweetness but lacks the dimension for a higher score. Plum, spice, earth, dried herb and sweet oak aromas. Medium body with well-integrated fruit, spice and oak flavors. Balanced acidity and tannin give a long finish with flavors that linger. - WineryAlc: 14.5%TA: 5.30 g/LpH: 3.77

The Stags Leap District is one of the smallest, yet most renowned, wine growing regions in Napa Valley. Here, Silverado Vineyards has been quietly producing world-class wines from their state-of-the-art winery for over 20 years. With grapes sourced almost entirely from Silverado’s family-owned estate vineyards, these hand-crafted wines are created in small lots with extreme care. They express richness, elegance and age-worthiness. Silverado wines are unique - one-of-a-kind blends of location, philosophy and winemaking style. The Mediterranean-style stone winery, established in 1981, stands on a knoll above the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Stags Leap District. Silverado is a legendary name from the early mining days. Today it symbolizes the Miller family’s long term commitment to the future of Napa Valley wine. Read less
