  Starting out, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux is a pretty, complex, balanced beauty that offers loads of mulberry, blackberry, spicy oak, and forest floor aromas and flavors. It's upfront, frontend loaded, seamless, and already impossible to resist, and is well worth checking out. It's not going to make old bones but it's one seriously delicious Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers the goods.   (12/2017)

  A juicy and fruity red with currant, berry and cherry character. Medium to full body, round tannins, and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.   (12/2017)

  Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux offers up baked blackberries and mulberries on the nose with stewed plums, sautéed herbs, damp soil and tree bark plus a waft of unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, it's rounded and soft in the mouth with plenty of juicy fruit and good persistence. (LPB)   (12/2017)

 "Fresh roasted coffee, sweet cassis, and aromatic blue fruits lead the way to full-bodied deliciousness. Much like the 2013 vintage, 2015 is dense and compact, with firm tannins that fully support the cascade of mouth-coating flavors. The finish is remarkably lengthy and complex. This wine is approachable upon release and cellar-worthy in proper aging conditions. Best now through 2028. 100% gravity flow was deployed in the production of this wine. The fruit was hand-picked and gently processed using our state-of-the-art Pellenc sorting and destemming system, producing what we describe as "fruit caviar." The pristine, whole berries were fermented in a combination of small stainless steel and concrete tank, plus some open-top barriques. The finished wine was aged in 65% new, tight grained, French Oak barrels for 18 months. We employ a variety of cooperages for Bordeaux varieties including Boutes, Sylvain, Taransaud, Gamba and Alain Foquet. 100% native, spontaneous yeast and malolactic fermentations were also key ingredients in the making of this wine."

Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with roast lamb, a good old burger, succulent ribeye, cooked medium to rare, cheese and portobello mushrooms.
