2017 - Sangiovese

NEW RELEASE! Limited quantities of older vintages are available. Please inquire with the Tasting Room 707.257.1770.

Our Sangiovese is grown on a historic vineyard halfway up Soda Canyon Road to Atlas Peak. This site was originally planted with grapes and olive trees in 1883 by farmer and merchant Felix Borreo. Bright cherry fruit and savory spice make our Sangiovese delightful.

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 bing cherry, raspberry and dried herbs. This medium-bodied wine exhibits flavors of cranberry-raspberry scone, pluot, sweet paprika, and finishes with a hint of bright orange blossom.
