- Featured in the March 2012 Silenus Vintners Wine Club
- Retailed for $70
The Silenus 2008 Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is filled with aromas of dark cherry, chocolate, dusty earth, rose petals, cedar and graphite. The flavors follow suit with deep cherry tart, a bit of mint, vanilla and cardamom. The fine tannins are elegantly present and nicely integrated. Although the wine is showcasing well now, it can cellar easily for another 5-10 years and be enjoyed well into the future.
If enjoyed now, we prefer a few hours of decanting time to allow all the aromas and flavors to shine through.
