1992 - 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.
