A classic Cab from the Napa Valley with plushy dark berry, crushed raspberry, dark chocolate, savoury herbs and toasty smoky oak spice flavours on the palate. Good now, better in one year. Pair with roast beef.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb Bolognese, grilled New York strip loin, hard cheese, braised pork shanks, veal chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Silenus 2015 is a smoky, spicy Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry, blueberry, crushed raspberry, tobacco leaf, leather and savoury herb flavours finishing smoky and spicy on the palate. In Greek mythology Silenus is the mentor and faithful companion to Dionysus, the god of wine. The image on this bottle label is a "thyrsus" a fennel staff topped with a pinecone dipped in honey used during harvest celebrations. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
