IN THE VINEYARD
The heart and soul of this wine is its vineyard sourcing and we have stellar new locations going into this gem. The diversity of fruit sourcing that created this wine is a testament to our efforts to increase quality across the board with the production of Silencieux Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2018 vintage was the vintage that kept giving, as wave after wave of magnificent fruit kept coming for a full 8 weeks. We benefited tremendously, once again, from doubling our employed harvest interns and state-or-the-art sorting systems that culled only the best berries for production, leaving us with “fruit caviar” as a base to produce the 2018 vintage. The result was a fruit base that was beautifully balanced and on par with the great vintages from Napa Valley.
