Silverado Vineyards Estate Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$49.99

94 Points                                       Silverado is one of Napa Valley's classic wineries, and the 2016 Estate Cabernet is classic Napa Valley. 94 Points Decanter: "In another near-perfect growing season, with a mild July and August and warmer temperatures in September, harvest wrapped up on 7 October - just a week before the first big rainstorm. The word that defines this midweight Cabernet is refined. It’s bright, lifted, dark-fruited and juicy, with attractive cassis aromas and savoury herb-and-olive flavours. Though mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, the blend includes a bit more Merlot than usual, as well as dashes of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc." 93 Points James Suckling:  "Attractive cassis here with a wealth of plush and nicely ripe blackberry and red-plum aromas and flavors. The palate has fine, firm tannins that carry long and fresh. Drink or hold."

It’s Cabernet Day today. Let's celebrate with a nice one from Napa Valley. Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim. Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, black cherries, vanilla, licorice, spices, earth, peppercorn, cedar, chocolates, mocha, coffee and leather. Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs. Dry on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, blueberries, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, coke, graphite, earth, coffee and peppercorn. Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries. This four-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up and shows the tannins and complexity. An hour in a decanter does the trick. Wine Enthusiasts 92 points. Nicely balanced, fruit forward, rich and elegant. Tasty and delicious. A good sipping wine, that will age nicely in the next 5 to 15 years. I've had a few vintages with much more age before, and it is always delicious. Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and crackers. A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 16 months in mostly French oak barrels (44% new). 14.6% alcohol by volume. 92 points. $46.

16/20 (88/100) Аромат спелых ягод красной смородины и вишни с нотой ментола. Не плотное с умеренной кислотностью и легкими танинами. Сочное во вкусе. Неплохо.

Juicy without over the top fruit or wood, good acid and tannins to keep it balanced and suggest a bright future. Suprisingly bright and tasty a couple days out as well!
