1993 - 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 Lots of late winter rain delayed bud break, but May rains reduced crop, leading to an early harvest. Heat waves at the end of July and the end of August kept growers and winemakers on their toes. Sunburn and overripe fruit were a threat, but winemakers spent much time in the vineyard to ensure a timely and selective harvest.
