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.

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.
