  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

A very well balanced South Okanagan Cabernet Sauvignon where ripe fruits meet a moderate alcohol level. The “Outwash” single vineyard in Oliver, BC produces fantastic grapes year in and year out for the Da Silvas and the 2020 vintage is no exception. Aromas of graphite are on full display here at first, followed by notes of cassis, blackberry, black currant and raspberry. The palate is soft and silky: surprisingly approachable for a very young wine. The first wave of flavours comes in with dark fruits like blackberry, black currant and black cherry before offering tobacco notes, fresh sage, dark chocolate, menthol, and toasted spices. The oak influence is palpable but not invasive which contributes to a good degree of complexity. I greatly appreciate how the winemaker was able to maintain freshness, low alcohol and bright acidity in a hot vintage. Could be one of the best, if not the best, single varietal Cab Sauv to date for Richard Da Silva. (CWC, 25/11/22). 174 cases made.
