When to drink: 2015 to 2030
The 2009 S.L.V. presents powerful blackberry and black cherry aromas with hints of cigar box and spice. The black fruit carries over onto the palate and is accented by notes of anise, mandarin orange, violets and cassis. With smooth fine-grained tannins, this Napa Cabernet offers great acidity and a persistent fruit-driven finish.
Serve S.L.V. with a dry-aged porterhouse steak, grilled game or a wild mushroom tart.
