Silverado Vineyards – Geo 2012 – Cabernet Sauvignon – Coombsville – Napa Valley

(98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc) The nose is fruity, aromatic, round and quite elegant. It reveals notes of red currant, strawberry and blackberry associated with a few woody notes as well as slight notes of spice and a hint of vanilla. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-structured and provides some creaminess, a nice matter and an acid frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, crushed strawberry and slight notes of cassis associated with touches of blueberry as well as a few woody notes and a few spices. Tannins are fine and slightly firm. Need to wait! (+ 2 years) Good length and persistence.
