February - California Cabernet 2008

Silverado Vineyards, Solo, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley

Bold aromas of blackcurrant, blackcurrant leaf, plum, black cherry and kirsch. Smooth, elegant and very sleek, with a very fine texture and silky tannins. It has pure fruit and is made to impress. A bit of a bruiser but has zest and freshness. 19pts/20
