Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012
Three and a half glasses
Medium body wine with mineral and vegetal flavors. Rosemary and raspberry scents. Very tannic. Not as good as I expected of a wine from that area. Quaffable. Tasted 1/10/2011
This wine has a very developed nose after it has had a chance to breathe. The wine is perfectly clear, deep in color, and has a little brown in the color. The taste has chocolate notes and traces that are a little nutty. The initial taste is a little sharp, but after letting it breathe, it opens up and mellows out. The initial taste is a little spicy, but is gone almost as soon as it is noticed. The aftertaste is smooth and light. This medium-bodied is a great wine and will only get better as it ages, either on the shelve or in your glass.
This dark purple wine has explosive aromas of jammy fruit including plum, cherry and currant followed by some hints of tobacco and smokey oak. On the palate, this full-bodied cabernet opens with wonderful black fruit flavors of blackberries and black cherries with some black tea and pepper in the middle and some licorice on the back. The oak was subtle and the tannins were rather soft for such a big and young Cabernet.
Good nose. Fairly harsh tannis. Lacks complexity ok finish for a wine at this price range. A little dissapointing for a great vintage stags leap district cab.
Two and a half glasses
Bright but pleasant. Tannic. Ager. Juicy. Medium body. Lt strawberry. Concentrated.

A good, elegant Cabernet, if a little soft and rough around the edges. It shows classic Napa flavors of blackberries, currants and cassis, wrapped into smooth, sweet tannins. Drink now. - S.H. ** SOLD OUT **

According to Robert Parker - The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, is excellent. Dark ruby/purple, with notes of chocolate, cassis, espresso roast, and some underbrush, the wine is attractive, rich, medium-bodied.
Forward aromas of mocha, cassis and bay leaf. Full and rich black cherry and cassis fruit meet cinnamon and pepper spices and sweet oak on the palate. Superb balance continues through a persistent finish.
I had the pleasure of getting a private tour of this outstanding winery many years ago. The quality of the wines produced there is exceptional. Over 50% of the grapes used for this 2005 Cabernet come from the Stags Leap District. It is a fabulous Bordeaux-style blend, with body and structure. The color is deep crimson with aromas of dark fruit with a hint of oak. Flavors of cherry, cranberry and plum delight the palate, with a lengthy and satisfying finish. The wine is drinkable now or can be cellared. Serve with pepper steak or any hearty beef dish.
