Silverado Vineyards Merlot Mt George Napa Valley 2012

External Review by We Speak Wine:

VINTAGE NOTES: Textbook conditions saw near-ideal spring bud-break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality with a smooth balance of acids and sugars. WINEMAKING NOTES: The wine was drained and pressed off the skins after 16 days. Completing malolactic fermentation in the barrel, the wine was then racked and placed back in the barrel to age for 17 months. Oak profile during aging, 100% French oak. 46% of the oak was new French. VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 95% Merlot 5% Cabernet Sauvignon Alcohol: 14.6% T.A.: 5.23 g/L PH: 3.58

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
