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

Silverado’s flagship offering, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a single vineyard) ratchets up the color, richness, texture and body, but not the alcohol (only 14.2% versus 14.5% in the Napa cuvee). The wine offers plenty of floral notes intermixed with blueberries, black raspberries, black currants and cherries. Lots of layers, good acidity and a tight but promising finish suggest this wine’s best days are still ahead of it. Tight and young for a 2003, it will benefit from another 3–4 years of cellaring and should drink well over the following 15–20 years.
