This Cabernet Sauvignon contains 6 percent Merlot and 4 percent Cabernet Franc, with fruit sourced from two Napa Valley vineyards mdash; The Disney Vineyard and the Mount George Vineyard. Jack Stuart has been the winemaker since Silverado was founded in 1981.

This is a wine of pedigree. It shows in the exquisite acids and tannins and overall balance of its parts, including oak. The flavors are classic blackcurrants and cassis, with a nice edge of dried herbs. Not a blockbuster, itrsquo;s probably best now.

This gentle, rich red has slightly volatile aromatics of peppermint over candied red fruit, a parallel to plum sauce for Hoisin beef.

Produced with mostly Stagsrsquo; Leap fruit, this renowned Cab has just a touch of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, which adds complexity and cinnamon-like spice to the long finish.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power. The final blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc offers up notes of crushed rock, spring flowers, red and black currants, and plum as well as hints of white chocolate and subtle barrique smells. Medium to full-bodied, with a nicely layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally, the wine has superb purity as well as accessability. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years.

Silverado flies under the radar, quietly producing opulent and balanced Cabernets while others get their 15 minutes. The rsquo;04 is riper and softer than previous vintages, with jammy blackberry, cherry, blueberry and smoky oak flavors, but it maintains balance and elegance. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker: Dark ruby/purple, with notes of chocolate, cassis, espresso roast, and some underbrush, the wine is attractive, rich, medium-bodied, and while tannic, not excessively so, as some 2006s have tended to be. This wine should drink well for 10-15 years. (Dec 2009)
