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

Bright, saturated red-ruby. Aromas of black fruits, menthol, coffee and mocha. Then surprisingly sweet, supple and seamless, with enticing dark fruits and spicy oak spreading over the palate. Broad and creamy; seems distinctly more pliant and graceful than the Limited bottling. Finishes with toothcoating tannins and very good breadth.

A brilliant effort, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Solo (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue in addition to a classic bouquet of graphite, licorice, black currants, dark cherries, underbrush, and fruitcake. Broad, full-bodied, and deep with moderate tannin, and terrific sweetness and length, it is an elegant, but substantial, authoritatively flavored Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring, and should last for two decades or more.

Silveradoandrsquo;s estate 2003 Cab is a worthy followup to their andrsquo;02. So classy, only Napa makes Cabs this balanced, rich and ageworthy, and this one from Stags Leap defines Tchelistcheffandrsquo;s description of an iron fist in a velvet glove. Great now, although young, and will age effortlessly for at least 10 years, probably longer.

Stags Leap District cabernet hits the texture receptors, and this one is the kind of textural pleasure that makes consideration of its fruit character moot. If you search, you might find candied violets, cocoa, a touch of black earthiness. The flavor detail may come with time, though the wine is easy to drink now, a soft, lush red for filet mignon.

Beautiful Cabernet. Has all the big, ripe juicy fruit and lavish oak of most Napa Cabs, plus elegance and harmonious balance, the hallmarks of tasteful, knowledgeable winemaking. Gets better and more interesting as it warms in the glass. Hard to beli... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2003 Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Here's a complex, layered wine that impresses for sheer power. It floods the mouth with ripe flavors of black currants, blackberries, black cherries, dark chocolate, anise and cedar that finish deep and long. Delicious and dry, but quite closed now in tannins, and needs time. Best after 2009, at least.

Oh, what a perfect expression of Stags Leap this is. The 100% Cab does have a soft voluptuousness, but it's also strong in tannins, and packed with black currant and cherry flavors. Absolutely delicious now, and should hold and improve through 2015 at least.
