Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
"This is an exuberant red with lots of currants and menthol aromas and flavors. Full and fruity with a firm, racy texture and a powerful finish. Give it two to three years of bottle age to come together more."

Winemaker's Notes

Dark cranberry in color with a hint of baking spices in the nose. At first sip there's a sweetness of ripe plum with a touch of vanilla and oak. Finishes on the palate with focused acidity and ends with an explosion of fruit pie flavors.

About Silverado

In the heart of Napa Valley's Stags Leap District sits a rocky peak with a spectacular Mediterranean-style stone winery perched on top. That winery is the iconic Silverado Vineyards, established in 1981 by Ron and Diane Disney Miller. Thirty years later, three generations of Miller Family continue to source grapes entirely from their family-owned estate Napa vineyards. From berry to bottle, each vine growing and wine making step is dedicated to expressing the character of grapes grown on each of the wineries six historic vineyards. Expressing richness and age-worthiness, Silverado wines are unique, one-of-a-kind blends of superlative vineyard location and elegant winemaking style.
