1989 - Cabernet Sauvignon

The hallmark of a great Cabernet vineyard is that it produces fine wine year after year, maintaining consistent high quality and asserting its unique character over different vintages. Originally planted in 1969, Silverado Vineyards was among the first to establish the reputation of the Stags Leap District for fine Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Notes Our 1989 vintage is true to its excellent vineyard heritage, with deep ruby color, aromas of currants and berries, and an exquisitely lush flavor. Traditional Bordeaux winemaking techniques, such as blending with a small proportion of Merlot and careful aging in new and seasoned French oak barrels, add to the complexity and aromas. Beneath the wine’s appealing youthfulness is a firm, balanced structure that suggests a long life and continued improvement.
