Silverlake Columbia Valley Cabernet/Merlot 1998

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/139183 for only £1 as I was the only bidder.It is fromj the state of Washington on the west coast of the United States. It is a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot. I started it last night with my supper of meat pie. There is certainly plenty of fresh blackcurrant,plum and black cherry style fruit with some soft and smooth tannins, I think it was well structured although to be fair it was probably just a little past its peak.Overall I thought it a quality bottle that would give some of the better Bordeaux wines a run for their money and it was a good match for the meat pie
