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.
