SILVIA CELLARS, CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NORTH COAST CALIFORNIA, 2017

Regular price $41.95

HISTORY

Silvia Cellars takes its inspiration from our Italian wine producing family heritage. Our mission is to produce a small number of high quality California wines from some of California’s best vineyards. We have dedicated ourselves to making delicious, handcrafted wines from some of the finest appellations on the West Coast: California (Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Mendocino County, Amador County and Paso Robles). We take pride and joy in working hard to produce premium quality wines.

GROWING SEASON

The exceptional 2017 vintage started with buds pushing a little early after a very dry winter. The beautiful growing season resulted in truly exceptional wines full of ripe flavors, developed in the sunshine, and balanced by natural acidity. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer but was free of damaging heat spells. With the consistent warmth, the harvest began about two weeks early and we had a very busy September. The last picks for our Cabernet Sauvignon came in early October and brought a classic West Coast autumn with warm days and very cool nights.

WINEMAKER COMMENTS

This wine is a blend of the best Cabernet Sauvignons in our North Coast vineyards coming from our growers of Mendocino Valley, Alexander Valley and Suisun Valley. The 2017 has a nose of plum and a touch of dark mocha. On the palate, layers of tannins and slight oak. This wine is fruity and elegant with a vibrant long mouth-feel. The finish is long with good structure. This
