Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Soft in texture and accented in smoky, toasted oak, this estate wine blends in 13% Merlot and 3% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It offers lush layers of tangy black fruit, clove, sage and a touch of warmth.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown is bright, floral and nicely lifted. The more finessed side of Stags Leap comes through in this attractive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon. I would prefer to drink the 2016 over the next decade or so given its mid-weight structure and easygoing personality.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with tobacco and tapenade notes with a core of blackcurrants and red and black plums plus a waft of spice cake. Medium-bodied, soft and laden with juicy black and red fruit flavors, it finishes with compelling restraint.
