    Winemaker's Notes:

    Silval is a particularly open and accessible style of Vintage Port, with the accent on exuberance of fruit. Made for lovers of Vintage Port who do not want to wait too long, it can be enjoyed when young and very fruity. This is a serious Vintage Port which will also repay years of cellar aging.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby. High-pitched, very ripe aromas of blackberry, spicecake, licorice pastille and rose petal, with a whiff of brandy. Impressively tactile and concentrated, with a three-dimensional texture to the rich flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Distinctly high-pitched, even a bit youthfully aggressive, but wonderfully pure wine. Finishes broad and long, with lovely sweetness and impressive grip. A superb showing, and a very good value in the context of vintage port.

    Vibrant, foresty blackberry flavors sustain this wine, their sleek density and green spice a match for the schist-driven tannin. Those tannins are powerful, reading as mineral from the aroma to the finish, yet they seem to lighten the wine rather than weigh it down. The balance gives an overall impression of gentleness, with nothing pushed, even as the flavors last for more than a minute. Air brings out some raisin and plum pudding flavor, suggesting this is a wine to enjoy in the near- to midterm, perhaps six to 20 years from the vintage.

    This is a wonderfully focused and intense young Vintage Port, with notes of flowers, crushed berries and cherry. Full-bodied and very sweet, with ripe berry and jam flavors. Long and powerful. Best after 2016. 1,000 cases made
