Silverado Vineyards has made excellent Cabernet Sauvignon since 1981, but only 12 vintages have merited the rare Limited label. Limited Cabernet Sauvignon is produced only in optimal years, when small lots of wine are blended to express the essence of classic, age worthy Napa Valley Cabernet. 2005 was that kind of year.
Mt. George Vineyard (62%)
Located east of Napa, Mt. George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century. The deep, gravelly soils are derived from volcanic rock and ash, providing depth and structure to Silverado's wines.
Stags Leap Vineyard (38%)
This sloping, gravelly soils and sunny exposure of this vineyard helped establish the reputation of Stags Leap District for fine Cabernet.
"... enormously promising is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Limited, a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Dense purple to the rim, with restrained, but promising aromas of lavender, roasted herbs, blueberries, and black currants, this wine hits the palate with sensational concentration, and elevated, but sweet, well-integrated tannins. It is a full-bodied, dense, exceptionally pure, harmonious
Cabernet with long-term potential. Forget it for 3–5 years, and drink it over the following 25–30 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Impresses for its depth, power and balance, a wine whose classic acid-tannin structure could only have come from a pedigreed terroir. There's an enormous concentration of black currants and minerals, but the wine is immature in astringent tannins."
"Inky hue with a garnet rim. Dusty, chalky scents followed by mint, plum, tobacco and leather. Tasty cherry with smoky oak accents. Very dry, compact finish with promising fruit and structure."

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
