Wow! Casa Silva’s newly released 2015 S38 Los Lingues Single Block Cabernet Sauvignon makes a statement, and has been awarded 93 and 92 points from Descorchados and Wine Enthusiast, respectively. Always pushing the envelope, the 2015 S38 Cabernet Sauvignon is unquestionably the finest Cabernet to date from Casa Silva. This illustrious winery has imbued their 2015 S38 Cabernet Sauvignon with a gorgeous deep ruby/ purple color, an intense bouquet, and a wealth of flavors in the form of ripe blackberries, tobacco, mint, and chocolate tones. Long in the mouth and saturated with flavor, the 2015 S38 makes quite a statement. Rich in flavor and tannin, the 2015 Casa Silva S38 Cabernet Sauvignon will drink well from 2019-2025. Enjoy!
Casa Silva has a knack for pairing its finest red wines with international favorites as well as traditional Chilean specialties. Seared flank steak with pebre salsa (aka Chilean pico de gallo) and beef empanadas are two traditional Chilean dishes that play especially well with Casa Silva’s flagship 2015 S38 Los Lingues Single Block Cabernet Sauvignon. Beef is Chile’s go-to accompaniment to Cabernet Sauvignon, but it is not the only companion. Wood-fired rotisserie roasted chicken basted with garlic, rosemary, and thyme also provides a tasty accompaniment to the 2015 S38. A spicy ratatouille makes a tasty complement, too. Cheese and mushroom stuffed ravioli offers another satisfying accompaniment as will most cow’s milk cheeses. Buen Provecho!
Casa Silva consistently astounds with the quality as well as the variety of the wines it produces. Casa Silva is a spotless modern winery that continues to ratchet up quality with each successive vintage. Undoubtedly, Casa Silva ranks among the finest wine estates in South America. It is located two hundred kilometers south of Santiago, in the heart of Colchagua, an area many are now calling Chile’s Napa Valley. Casa Silva has garnered more recognition and awards at international wine competitions than any other Chilean winery. It has also been awarded Winery of Year from numerous sources many times over. Furthermore, Catad’Or Hyatt, Chile’s most prestigious wine competition, has named Casa Silva “the Best Chilean Producer” three consecutive times. However, it is not the past that matters, but the present. The Silva family and consulting enologist Mario Geise, dubbed the King of Carmenère, continue to take this beautiful property that sits at the base of the towering Andes to even loftier heights.
Casa Silva’s present inception dates back to only 1997, the year this property began bottling premium wines under its own name. However, historical accounts tell us that the Silva family’s predecessors were pioneers in Colchagua more than a century ago, when the Silvas brought the first grape varieties from France to the Angostura estate they still occupy on the slopes of the Cordillera of the Andes that loom above the vineyards. Today, the Silvas remain pioneers: they continue as Colchagua’s foremost experts on Carmenère, Chile’s emblematic red grape variety. Moreover, this great property is also at the vanguard of South America’s success with other traditional French grape varieties, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, and Semillon. Casa Silva’s latest release, the 2015 S38 Los Lingues Single Block Cabernet Sauvignon (this month’s feature), is a tour de force in winemaking, leaving no doubt why the wines of Casa Silva are among the most highly acclaimed in South America.
