From California, Silenus Tyros 2017 is a dry, medium-bodied Cabernet-Sauvignon-driven red blend with almost 25% in Merlot. Easy to enjoy with ripe black cherry, plum, dried fine herbs, mocha and sweet cake spice flavours on the palate. Drink or hold. Pour with a pork tenderloin from the grill.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: sausage cassoulet, beef Porterhouse steak, BBQ beef long ribs.

Silenus Tyros 2017 is a dry, medium-bodied Cabernet-Sauvignon-driven red blend with approx. 25% Merlot added to the mix. Lovely on the nose with ripe dark cherry, plum, cassis and mocha flavours on the palate, subtle on the finish with fine dried herbs and oak spice. Very approachable now. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews
