Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of Linzer cookies and savory herbs. A fresh, clean palate with flavors of dark cherry cola, black raspberry, and hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and smooth with a lingering berry finish.

Tasting Panel
From three of the winery's heritage vine- yards—Mt. George in Coombsville; Silverado Vineyard; and Oakville Station, a historic site overseen by UC Davis—this melodic red (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and 1% Cab Franc) aged 18 months in 48% new oak (mostly French, with a smaller percentage of Hungarian and American). Following a perfume of mountain brush, dried violets, blackberry, and slate, the palate makes a bold and elegant statement; its reserved power and beauty show in notes of spiced cedar, sweet tobacco, and a melange of Italian herb–seasoned blue, red, and black fruit.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
This estate-grown cabernet focuses on Silverado’s vineyards in the Stags Leap District and Coombsville, the SLD portion contributing to the wine’s blueberry-and-espresso richness, refreshed by cooler cherry notes from Mt. George to the south. It seems simple at first, before the wine’s tannic density begins to open with air, its floral detail more apparent.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Silverado Vineyards Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon shows excellent firmness and length on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This exhibits attractive and focused aromas and flavors of black fruit, dust, and licorice. Pair with grilled, well-marbled beef. (Tasted: May 7, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
JS 92
James Suckling
Sour cherry and walnut with some cherry and currant undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
A healthy 14% Merlot contributes softness and lifted red fruit to this food-friendly, balanced wine. Cherry and currant accent the smooth, rounded texture and supple, lengthy tannins.

Silverado Vineyards Winery Video

Nestled in the hills on the North West side of the Stags Leap District, Silverado Vineyards Winery has been a favorite wine country destination and home to some of the Napa Valley’s most-recognized wines for almost forty years. In 1981, Ron and Diane Disney Miller and her mother, Lillian Disney, established Silverado Vineyards to make wines from the historic sites of the estate the family owns. The winery was named in honor of the Silverado Vineyard, one of the first four in Stags Leap District to plant Cabernet in the 1960s. The vineyard pays homage to the abandoned mining town at the top of the Valley which also inspired the name of the famous Silverado Trail where Silverado Vineyards and other iconic wineries of the Stags Leap District are situated. Silverado Vineyards owns five other storied vineyards across Napa Valley’s top AVAs: Miller Ranch, Mt. George, Soda Creek Ranch (Borreo), Firetree, and Vineburg. All of Silverado’s wines are estate-grown, produced and bottled. Winemaker Jon Emmerich is only the second lead winemaker in the history of Silverado Vineyards and celebrated his 30th vintage with the winery in 2020. Jon has grown Silverado’s reputation for quality and consistency along with his colleague Elena Franceschi, who has been Silverado’s associate winemaker for nearly 25 years. When Diane Miller passed away in 2013, Ron Miller became president of the Board of Directors of The Walt Disney Family Museum, and chairman of Silverado Vineyards until his passing in 2019. Diane and Ron’s children and grandchildren proudly continue to carry their family’s legacy forward as the owners of Silverado Vineyards.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
