Vintage Notes The 2015 growing season in Napa Valley started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring. This resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Colder temperatures in May (during the peak of bloom) caused uneven fruit set which ultimately resulted in a much smaller crop in 2015, compared to both average yields and the three abundant years that preceded it. The harvest was one of the earliest on record in Napa Valley and for Silverado Vineyards. Tasting Notes A refined Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon not overshadowed by oak or overripe flavors. Well-defined fruit aromas and flavors of boysenberry and plum with great acidity and hints of earth and a touch of vanilla. Enjoy now with bacon wrapped meatloaf or cellar to enjoy later.
