This wine opens with scents of, cassis, licorice, blackberries and coffee that lead to a concen-trated, full-bodied wine that showcases great length on the palate. Approachable upon release, and cellar worthy in proper aging conditions, fans of our Bone Ash Vineyard Cabernet Sauvi-gnon and our Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon will love this wine for its fruit concentra-tion, beautiful complexity, and streamlined structure. This is the fourth vintage of Silencieux Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a delicious effort. This is largely the result of our vineyard selections for this year’s release. Best now through 2020.
Robert Parker: The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux is a much larger cuvee of 1,568 cases from top sources in Napa. Another big time winner, it is a delicious, reasonably priced Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that showcases Venge’s Midas touch with this varietal. Rich, concentrated, round and generous, this is a sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon with no hard edges. Enjoy it now and over the next 10-15 years.
