Silverado Vineyards – Merlot 2011 – Mt George Vineyard – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and sligthly powerful. It reveals notes of cassis, blackberry and a few woody notes associated with fine spicy notes as well as slight notes of spices. The palate is fruity, mineral, a bit fat and offers a fresh frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, plum and slight notes of small black berries combined with slight notes of chocolate, oaky notes and very slight notes of bell pepper. Tannins are fine and slightly firm. Good length.
