Food Pairings for Silverado Vineyards Merlot Stags Leap District
Much heavier on the Oak then expected, but not over powering. Very good wine, paired with prime rib.
External Reviews for Silverado Vineyards Merlot Stags Leap District
Winemaking Notes: Following wet February weather, warm March temperatures forced early budbreak and unusally dry spring conditions, plus a brief heat spike at the end of April, hastened flowering and kept vine vigor under control.Harvested September 8 and 14, 2004. Brix level at harvest was 26.1. Sixteen days of maceration; wine was aged 14 months in 1005 new French oak barrels. Analysis: Alcohol, 14.5 percent; titratable acidity, 5.75g per L; pH, 3.69; Tasting Notes: Complex blend of dried herbs and ripe berry aromatics, wtih the oak in a supporting role. Lush density in the midpallette. Good acidity with fruit finish.
