A beautiful Estate grown and produced Merlot from Silverado's Mt. George Vineyard, a site ideally suited to the growth of this Bordeaux varietal. This 2008 Merlot has bright, ripe cherry aromas interlaced with dried and fresh herb notes. On the palate, medium to full body with spicy berry flavors. The balanced acidity and tannin lead to a long finish.
Blend: 91% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1%Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
Smooth & Supple
For a merlot this wine has umph to it. Very nice fruit with a a very smooth finish. Opens up nicely with aeration or decanting. A very good deal!
