Tasting Notes

We believe 2008 to be one of the best Silhouettes that Merryvale has ever produced.  The wine has excellent intensity with vibrant aromas of fresh pear, brioche, minerals, baked apple, almond extract and lemon curd along with baking spices (nutmeg, faint cinnamon) and vanilla bean. The mouthfeel is round and full with refreshing acidity that develops into a lengthy finish.

Silhouette is our most age-worth white wine and will develop in the bottle for the next 5-10 years. 

Vineyard Notes

Silhouette is Merryvale’s limited production, top white wine and contains the best of the best Napa Valley and Carneros Chardonnay fruit, including grapes from our Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard and the famed Hyde Vineyard. We choose our very favorite lots based on superior concentration and intensity of flavor, and then we blend and age the wine for 17 months in 70% new French Oak barrels.
