Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage Notes From abundant winter rains to cool spring weather, warm summer
temperatures and October’s wildfires, 2017 is a memorable vintage.
Plentiful winter rains helped refresh our vines and led to a cool,
mild spring. Due in part to these warmer temperatures, 90% of
Napa Valley’s grape tonnage was harvested before the wine country
wildfires began. Based on Silverado’s house wine style, we typically
pick early and were fortunate to have 100% of our fruit harvested
with no smoke impact. Tasting Notes 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. Reviews 95 points from The Tasting Panel, Meridith May, April 2020 issue
