The 2016 Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of blackberry crisp and flavors of cherry, clove and a hint of dark chocolate. Full-bodied and smooth with a lingering finish.

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.

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.
