Winemaker's Notes:

A good value in scrumptious California Cabernet, with forward fruit of crushed berries, vanilla, cedar, bay leaf and cocoa in the aroma. Cherry and blackberry on the palate blends well with sweet oak. Fine concentration and balance. Lengthy finish.

"Delicious black cherry, spicy plum and blackberry flavors are well-centered, offering depth and richness and finishing with firm tannins wrapped around a core of mocha-laced oak. A solid value. Drink now through 2009."

About Silverado Vineyards:

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.
