- 2006 Estate Sangiovese
"...The elegant fruit flavors and earthy notes shine..."
"Sangiovese must be a difficult grape to grow outside of Italy because it has not established a firm footing and widespread reputation for great wine outside of that country. With that background, Silverado's rendition is all the more impressive. A touch--6%--of Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure without dominating Sangiovese's cherry-like signature. The elegant fruit flavors and earthy notes shine because they are not hidden by the influence of new oak, since the winemaker opted to age the wine mostly in older oak barrels. 89 Points"
