This Merlot has wonderful aromas of cherry and raspberry with hints of cocoa, earth, spice and leaf. Nice fruit density on the mid palate and great structure overall, ending with sweet oak on the finish.

Located east of Napa, Mt. George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century.  The deep, gravelly soils are derived from volcanic rock and ash, providing depth and structure to Silverado’s wines.

Our Merlot vines are rooted in the foothills of an ancient volcano, Mt. George. These rocky slopes are in a climate sweet spot: close enough to the cool San Pablo Bay to give the wine aromas of rosemary and mint, warm enough to bring out flavors of blackberry and spice. We finish the wine in oak to add a hint of cocoa and a velvety texture.

Winemaker Notes
On average the grapes were harvested at 24.5 degrees Brix with an average of 16 days of maceration. The wine was barrel aged for 17 months in 46% new French Oak with an overall profile of 100% French.
