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

A nice fresh nose that delivers plenty of apple, citrus and floral notes in a slightly sweet vein. Nicely medium bodied in the mouth, this combines fresh acids with a bit of viscosity, yielding a light yet silky mouthfeel. The flavors are in the orange cream and apple end of the spectrum, with refreshing acids on the moderately long, yet simple finish that ends on pear fruit and hard mineral tones. This is a nicely styled crowd pleaser style of winemaking, it’s pretty fruity yet with bags of acid making it best suited for drinking on it’s own, or with some simple grilled fish. 87pts

Pale yellow color. Abundant fruit aromas of sweet yellow apple, honeydew melon and ripe citrus. Floral notes highlight the nose while aromas of vanilla and oak stay in the background. On the palate, light and refreshing, sprightly! Lingering flavors on the finish tempt you back for another sip.

Leesy scents of grape skins in the initial aromas and finish lend their juiciness to the maple syrup flavors of oak. Malty and long, for grilled port.

The 2007 Chardonnay has copious lime and lemon oil as well as some orange blossom and honeysuckle notes. The wine has a greenish hue to its color, and shows little evidence of any noticeable oak other than some subtle spice. It has zesty acidity, medium to full body, and a long, pure finish. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. This is a strong group of wines from Silverado, and certainly a great deal of credit must go to winemaker Jonathan Emmerich.

Tart and lean, with citrus flavors just nudging into green apples. Oak adds richness and viscosity; most of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, but it's still an angular Chardonnay with a lemony finish.

Intense, spicy and lively; a vibrant wine, with focused pineapple, lemon and nutmeg aromas and flavors and a tight, concentrated finish. Best from 1994 or '95.
