Wine Advocate 92
Composed of 96 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 Malbec and 2 Merlot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Silencieux prances out of the glass with gregarious notions of black currant cordial, kirsch, blueberry preserves and potpourri plus suggestions of fallen leaves, cinnamon stick and aniseed. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with ripe black and blue fruits, supported by grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing on a compelling savory note.
