Silverado Vineyards – Merlot 2012 – Stags Leap District – Napa Valley

The nose is fresh, fruity and harmonious. It reveals notes of cassis, blueberry and slight woody notes associated with slight notes of spices. The palate is fruity, mineral, racy and quite silky. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, juicy cassis and a few notes of blueberry (in the background) associated with a fine touch of red berries, slight woody notes and fine toasted notes as well as very fine notes of vanilla and hazelnut. Tannins are fine, elegant and slightly firm. Good length and persistence on toasted notes and vanilla.
