Slow ripening weather produced mature aromas of sweet cedar, background dark cherry and uplifting perception of dusty sweetness in the nose. Napa like flavors from exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Mendocino’s Redwood Valley.
Silva Road Vineyard is owned by Ethan Silva, his wife Jan 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.
