Silverado Vineyards 2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
In 1981, Ron and Diane Miller established Silverado Vineyards to begin making wines from the historic sites that comprised their estate. Their ranches were first planted to vineyards by Napa pioneers between 1865 and 1895. Each played an important role in establishing the reputation of their appellations: Carneros, Coombsville, Yountville, Soda Creak Canyon and Stags Leap District. The beautiful fruit from these six vineyards is the exclusive source of Silverado Vineyards’ Estate and Single Vineyards wines -- the Miller family’s best expression of the Napa Valley they love and admire.
STAGS LEAP VINEYARD (60%)
The sloping, gravelly soils and sunny exposure of this vineyard helped establish the reputation of Stags Leap District for fine Cabernet Sauvignon.
MT. GEORGE VINEYARD (33%)
Located east of Napa, Mt. George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century. The deep, gravelly soils are derived from volcanic rock and ash, providing depth and structure to Silverado’s wines.
For this classic Cabernet Sauvignon, our vineyards deliver a balanced structure and velvety texture, black cherry aroma, flavors of ripe plum and hints of licorice on the finish.
