Silverado-Limited Reserve 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

While Silverado Vineyards has been producing excellent Cabernet Sauvignon since 1981, the 1997 vintage marked only the eighth time a Limited Reserve was produced. Rich fruit and spice on the palate with firm tannins and balanced acidity, full body; long concentrated finish. Maceration on skins was 22 day; aged average of 22 months in 53 percent new ballels of French oak. Sleeping quitely for ten years at Silverado Vineyards.

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
