Deliciously dark and ponderous. This wine’s smooth aromas lure you in for more. Sweet cedar is lifted from other layered scents of dark cherry, plum and black pepper. A hint of vanilla is deliciously inviting.
A captivating mouthful of tasty Cabernet Sauvignon. Mature velvety flavors of Santa Rosa plum and cassis envelop your mouth, leaving a subtle sense of enjoyment. Age worthy tannins support this wine’s pedigree to test the term of ageabilty.
Silva Road Vineyard is owned by Ethan Silva and his sister, Josephine and is located in the middle reaches of the Redwood Valley AVA, at an elevation of 975 feet. Here, the Silva Family grows organically farmed Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon on a rocky bench above the headwaters of the Russian River. In contrast to surrounding growing regions, the Redwood Valley is considerably cooler than other areas in the Ukiah valley, producing Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon that slowly matures with elegance and pedigree.
