Cabernet Sauvignon Limited Reserve Silverado Vineyards Imperial 1991

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Deep rich and focused with herb-laced currant black cherry and plummy fruit. Tightens up and turns richly tannic on the finish with a touch of pencil lead. Has the balance and concentration for further cellaring.-- 81/ 91 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2009. (JL) Wine Spectator.

The Stags Leap District is one of the smallest, yet most renowned, wine growing regions in Napa Valley. Here, Silverado Vineyards has been quietly producing world-class wines from their state-of-the-art winery for over 20 years. With grapes sourced almost entirely from Silverado’s family-owned estate vineyards, these hand-crafted wines are created in small lots with extreme care. They express richness, elegance and age-worthiness. Silverado wines are unique - one-of-a-kind blends of location, philosophy and winemaking style. The Mediterranean-style stone winery, established in 1981, stands on a knoll above the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Stags Leap District. Silverado is a legendary name from the early mining days. Today it symbolizes the Miller family’s long term commitment to the future of Napa Valley wine. Read less

The first Limited Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon the 1991 is a knock-out effort. The wine possesses an opaque purple color a big sweet nose of cassis and new oak and full-bodied concentrated well-balanced flavors with a harmonious integration of wood acidity alcohol and tannin. Although still young and unevolved this wine promises to last and improve for 12-15+ years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
